Call for photo exhibition in Rotterdam. Deadline: Oct. 19, 2018

We call for entries from photographers and photographic artists with images that are dedicated to the theme

‘Winterreise’

This exhibition will be on view from November 14th until december 23th, 2018, in Galerie Sehnsucht. Jury this time, will be the gallerists themselves. It will show their own selection from the works that were submitted in the call. The deadline for the call is october 19th 24.00 hours 2018.

Since this call is for the last exhibition in the dark months of 2018 we have a challenging and exciting theme: Winterreise. Winter is a time of cosiness and warmth at home, and beautiful white landscapes, but can also be the bitter time of harsh coldness, desolation and discomfort. Picturalists like Stieglitz captured winter as harmless beautiful frozen landscapes, but you   only have to think of the photos of Josef Koudelka, the paintings by Caspar David Friedrich or Schubert’s famous Winterreise to know that wintertime is not necessarily the happiest time of the year. Josef Koudelka photographed scared dogs in abandoned winter parks and isolated wanderers fighting the snow, just as Friedrich painted this kind of scenes 200 years earlier. Schubert’s hero sets of in a dark and freezing winter night, mocked by ravens, to rid of his lost love. But on the other hand, Martin Parr had great fun capturing people during winterholidays, Inge Morath photographed winter most idyllically, and Agnus McBean enjoyed himself with making fun christmas cards.

What we are looking for, is artistic photography showing the feeling of a Winterreise. Of course you can send in your best winter landscape photo’s. But we want the Winterreise-exhibition also to be a timeless show, dealing with various emotions, feelings and atmospheres. Images of (lost) loves, romance, grief and hurt, happiness and loneliness, comfort and security, coldness, nature and trees, ravens and stray dogs and yes, of winter. Get inspired by the great masters of photography, by the music with its strong visual imagery (if you’d like the full text you can read it here, or listen here), or freestyle and follow your own ideas on the theme.

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, 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. Learn how to participate and send us your best work by clicking here.
