20/20 Photo Festival Call for Entry – Technology: Before, During, After

20/20 Photo Festival Call for Entry – Technology: Before, During, After

Gravy Studio and Eddi Jones Projects present the 20/20 Photo Festival Call for Entry show centered around the theme Technology: Before, During, After. The show will bring together a wide range of perspectives on old and new photographic technologies from emerging and established photographers from Philadelphia and beyond. We invite any artist whose work relates to the theme to submit photographic artwork to be selected by photographer and curator Travis Flack, a multidisciplinary artist based in Los Angeles. Travis works primarily with photography, using various methods of image manipulation to create chaotic scenes of revised history through alteration and intervention. He also supports artists and photo organizations working with Eddi Jones Projects, a boutique, artist-run agency.

The theme for this year’s show is based on Douglas Adam’s commentary on living and growing with technology in his collection of posthumous essays The Salmon of Doubt:

1. Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.

2. Anything that’s invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.

3. Anything invented after you’re thirty-five is against the natural order of things.

22 years after its initial publication, it seems that these satirical rules still have some poignant relevance in today’s rapidly-changing advancement of photographic technology. A large majority of photographers working today have made the switch from film to digital, swapped chemistry for pixels and were able to increase their workflow accordingly.

For some, a romantic inclination to remain with past processes became a choice in both rejecting modernity while embracing tradition with a refreshing contemporary twist. For others, embracing cutting-edge tools like AI provides an opportunity to create new visual culture and update old traditions to reflect the present day.

While Adams might have given us a guideline for how technology will eventually show up in different stages of our lives, artists have a tendency to gravitate towards methods that are personal, choosing technology that relates to how they grew up, what they are now, and where they’ve been.

Before, During, After is an open call that explores how experience is shaped by technology, and the particular ways in which tools, old and new, reflect the personal nature of image-making as a form of self expression.
