The Portrait: I’ll Be Your Mirror
1650 Gallery is hosting the juried photography exhibition I’LL BE YOUR MIRROR: THE PORTRAIT. Great portraiture such as that produced by Dorothea Lange, Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, Matthew Brady, Peter Hujar and Diane Arbus comprise one of the main pillars of the Pantheon of photographic arts.
The challenge of capturing the personality behind the person requires both technical know-how and an artist’s eye, combining technique, intuition and empathy. When done right, the unseen power of persona comes into focus and, as if by magic — personality seems to jump from the page.
This month 1650 Gallery tips our hat to the power of people pictures, and welcomes your work in the blockbuster genre of photographic portraiture.
Approximately fifty works will be chosen from submitted photographs to be included in the I’LL BE YOUR MIRROR 2015 exhibition at 1650 Gallery in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. Additional works may also be selected for an online gallery exhibition page.
There is an entry fee of $30 for up to 5 images. Additional entries may be submitted for $5 each.
We offer free matting and framing for accepted photographs that fit our pre-cut mat sizes for the duration of the exhibition. We have a variety of frames and mats to choose from.
We will also print your photo for a nominal fee if you are accepted into the show and would prefer not to mail a print.
