2018 January 6

not a HUNGRY holiday

I’ve been on vacation for a few days.  It might be more accurate to say I’ve been eating for a solid three days.  Before we set out, every restaurant was planned, and the challenge became how to fit in all the additional little eateries and diners that popped up en route.  I was reminded, again, that fancy presentation & ingredients don’t make food more filling, more tangible, than the classics.  I enjoyed the 7″ layer cake from the 24-hour diner just as much as the gatrique-dotted gastropub fare.  This next Call wants your tangible, in the hand (not the stomach) photographs.  I love this call…

Check out this Call from L.A. Photo Curator (online) for the Tangible Photograph exhibit. $20 entry, no shipping, plus art publication for ALL entrants.   $20 entry for this unique call.  Take a look…

from L.A. Photo Curator

ELIGIBILITY: Open to all artists

MEDIA: Photography

THEME:  The Tangible Photography. “One of my favorite pastimes is exploring old junk shops & antique stores. I love vintage books, old photographs, ephemera, boxes, trinkets, weird oddities, games etc. I suppose I’m a nostalgic person, but the timelessness of these objects inspires me to create things myself that have a timeless physicality to them. I enjoy artwork that have visual impactfulness & a certain contextual materiality. I practice this in both my own art making as well as my publishing projects of other artists’ work. For this call for art I’m hoping to present works of photo-based art that truly transcend the notion of the 2-d (or screen) photograph. My hope with this exhibit is for viewers to expand their understanding of what photography is – or can be.” –Blue Mitchell
