L.A. Photo Curator: Nothing Special
THEME: ‘NOTHING SPECIAL’ with curator Bree Lamb
Lamb says, “From the spontaneity and unpredictability of street photography to the artfully crafted still life to the happenstance urbanscape and far beyond, photographers have long been able to create powerful, beautiful work drawing from the banality of everyday life.
How do you make something compelling out of nothing special? This question has become compounded as the ubiquity of image-making and image-sharing has reached at an all-time peak and is steadily growing through various social media outlets. In a time when we are sharing, “liking,” and viewing more images than ever, how are you
seeing and capturing the world around you?
This call is looking for well-seen images of the everyday – the benign, the boring, the overlooked. I’m curious as to how you view the world, and in particular how you capture the subtle, in-between moments, people and spaces that are such a large part of our daily lives. Whether found, staged, or manipulated, all subject matter and methods of capture are welcome.”
Bree Lamb is a working artist, editor, and educator based in New Mexico. She is the Assistant Editor at Fraction Magazine, Project Manager for Fraction Editions, and Part-Time Faculty at New Mexico
20% of all artist fees go to two charities a month. They’re split between the curator’s favorite charity and the first place winner’s favorite charity.
Lamb has chosen the Union of Concerned Scientists for her charity.
(Practical solutions to some of our planet’s most pressing problems—from combating global warming and developing sustainable ways to feed, power, and transport ourselves, to fighting misinformation, advancing racial equity, and reducing the threat of nuclear war).
ALL entrants work is shown on their own page ($20 for 3 images) with their artist statement, website info, portions of their bio and CV.
