I am very excited to be the juror for the upcoming call for entry, Dreams, at the Center for Fine Art Photography. “Dreams are a creation of images, ideas, sensations and emotions that occur in our conscious and subconscious mind. They can be the manifestation of our aspirations, goals, and fears both realistic and fantastic.” Submit by April 27th

“LightBox Photographic Gallery is pleased to announce the call for submissions for our second annual Plastic Fantastic Show. This group show celebrates LightBox’s love for photographic images made with plastic “toy” cameras. We have established this show to be held every year to celebrate the gallery’s anniversary. The first Plastic Fantastic Show was an amazing collection featuring images from over 40 photographers from around the United States, as well as Sweden, Australia, Spain, Great Britain and Canada. This genre of photography has a huge following around the world, with images made from very low tech cameras with plastic lenses. Toy cameras are special with the wondrous and dreamlike images they create, subjects take on a unique special quality that is rarely found from any other capture device.”
THE CALL: From casual meals to gourmet banquets, DINNER is part of our daily lives. Whether we celebrate it or just tolerate it, we can’t do without it. We plan greatly for it, or grin and bear it. It’s a ritual, whether eating on the run or at the dinner table, alone or with friends and family. We romance and socialize around it, worry about it, prepare for it, dread it, or try to ignore it. We study recipes, look through fancy restaurant windows in envy, are hungry for the next DINNER, wonder if we can afford it.
