Photography Exhibition Call. Deadline: Jan. 21, 2018

Call for entries:

The Time Machine

Photography is an art of teleporting the past into the future –
Mehmet Murat Ildan (Turkish Playwright)

For photographers, time is an important concept. A photograph is a moment frozen in time, but it’s meaning changes in the future and the photo itself becomes part of the past. Photography is two hundred years old now. During these centuries, the looks of the photographs have changed. When we see a photograph, we instinctly place it into some point in time. Brown, black and white are old, colour photographs are new. Sometimes we are right, sometimes wrong.

Can you use your camera as timemachine? Can you give us a feeling of displacement in time, simply by showing us your photographic work? Are you able to surprise us by using old techniques capturing modern day subjects, or, on the contrary, using modern techniques but in a strange, timeless, old fashioned manner? Can you combine old and new, making the future? This exhibition will be about time – past, present and future.

The guest curator is Jeroen de Wijs. He is a dedicated collodion photographer, and an educator at the Willem de Kooning Academy for the arts (Rotterdam). He is currently working on a project “capturing the present with the past”, which embodies travel photography with a mammoth collodion camera of modern subjects. He gives a presentation on the subject on January, 19th (check this link “events”).

The exhibition will run from February, 14th, untill March, 24th, 2018.
The deadline for submitting your images is January, 21st. 2018

“Home-land”. Photography Exhibition Call, Netherlands. Deadline: Nov. 26, 2017

We call for entries from photographers and photographic artists with images that are dedicated to “Home-land”. Our second exhibition will be on view with this title from December, 13th until January, 27th, 2018, in our wonderful gallery at the Vijverhofstraat. It will show our selection from the works that were submitted in the call. The deadline for the call is November, 26th.

We will be assisted in making this selection by Otto Snoek. He is a Rotterdam-based photographer with international renown, exhibiting his work all over the world. He will be the guest curator for this exhibition.

Home-land

“you don’t live in a country. You live in your home-land. But what is it?”

Home-land….is this your fatherland? If so, what defines your fatherland, apart from the clichés which most often are not true? Is it the land you live in? The land you where born? The hometown, house or maybe even just the room you live in? Does it have any connection with your community? What about other communities claiming the same homeland? Is it your language? How do you feel about your home-land? What do you see?

The notions of “nation”, “community”, “region”, “people” are very elusive and have always been so. Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908-2004) in his series for “Europe” tried to find the cultural phenomens that divide or bind us as Europeans; the photography of Josef Koudelka (b. 1938) on the other hand shows us the feelings and observations of an exile. Modern photographers like Otto Snoek and Martin Parr (b. 1952) show us the behavior of our compratiots, without any comments, but still leaving you behind with an awkward feeling.

What will you show us?

Your work can be anything from a straight photograph, to manipulated and even drawn photoshop projects, from alternative 19th century photographic techniques to modern, computer made images, graphic arts (etchings, litho’s…), as long as it’s based on one or more photographic images (no drawings or paintings) and you can show us how it looks by sending us a digital file.
