Online Group Exhibition: "About Self" - Deadline: 10/15/17
We are excited to announce that our 3rd online group exhibition, About Self, will be curated by Dee Elegia! We are currently seeking instant film submissions in response to the following prompt.
Ekegia Writes: It's a daunting concept for any photographer to engage with the self-portrait, but those of us who do often discover that pointing the camera at ourselves can be a journey of discovery. It can be used not just to capture our likeness but to express, celebrate, or reveal something personal. Creating self-portraits with instant film can be a difficult medium to master and lends itself to being creative. For this online exhibition, I would love to see images which truly explore the vulnerable and challenging elements of self-portraiture.
The deadline for submissions is October 15th, 2017. Visit the Group Exhibition page for all the details!
