L.A. Photo Curator ‘Vernacular’
Kopeikin says, “I’d like the photographers to take a picture that has the elements of a snapshot, something you might find at a flea market, while at the same time including an aspect of their own aesthetic.”
Kopeikin came up with this theme as just having seen the Walker Evans retrospective at SFMOMA, where Evans work, American vernacular, or the language of everyday life found in roadside attractions, postcards, storefronts, and signage across the country stuck out in his memory.
Over five decades, Evans’s powerful images responded to and reflected the spirit, suffering, and fortitude of a nation. His iconic images of the Great Depression and his postwar photo essays depicting shop window displays, urban architecture, and junked automobiles defined a new documentary style that continues to influence generations of artists.
This call is not just about American vernacular. It’s about vernacular in all countries.
The Kopeikin Gallery is an internationally recognized gallery of photography and contemporary art in the Culver City Arts District of Los Angeles. Kopeikin Gallery has presented exhibitions by photography’s modern masters such as Diane Arbus, Lee Friedlander, Walker Evans, Edward Weston, Garry Winogrand, Nicholas Nixon, Harold Eugene Edgerton and contemporary photographers such as Jeffrey Milstein, Chris Jordan, Jill Greenberg, Kahn and Selesnik and Kevin Cooley. Following decades of exploring photography’s history, the gallery program has expanded beyond photography to include painting and works on paper.
20% of artist fees go to charity. 10% to the curator’s charity and 10% to the first place winner’s charity.
$20 for 3 images. ALL entrants work is shown on their own page with their artist statement, website info, portions of their bio and CV.
