The Lunch Box Gallery, in collaboration with iPhoneographer Jaime Ferreyros, is pleased to announce the call for submissions for its new show â€œiPhoneography: Updated Visual Dialogsâ€. The exhibit will be displayed from March 10th to April 7th, 2012.
For the show, The Lunch Box Gallery is aiming to explore the social phenomenon of iPhoneography as a personal tool globally used to generate visual content, be shared and therefore, communicate. Here, the images many times meticulously conceived, some others more intuitively taken – yet all intentionally post-produced – are intended as mirrors of the userâ€™s everyday life; a visual diary of the individual that can become an open book to their interests, curiosities, ideas, intimacy or even artistic take.
As an enabler for creative communication, iPhoneography has become a new medium for massive dialog, where images taken and edited with the iPhone are openly shared, sometimes instantly and some other times preceded by a complex creative process; regardless, is undeniable that all of these images project a part of the userâ€™s self.
The exhibition â€œiPhoneography: Updated Visual Dialogsâ€ as a whole will be an integral, heterogeneous and diverse expression of that avalanche of pixels that are being registered and shared in modern times; yet, in this immensity, every picture in the show becomes a window, a glimpse of the iPhoneographerâ€™s vision, sensitivity and everyday life.
â€œiPhoneography: Updated Visual Dialogsâ€ is inspired by Chase Jarvis famous quote â€œThe Best Camera is the One That’s With Youâ€ â„¢. Prove it!
Eligibility and Restrictions:
These are the general guidelines for the show:
– The call for entries is open to all iPhoneographers, both professionals and amateurs, emerging and established, national and international over 18 years of age.
– Pictures must be taken and edited on the iPhone (not on any other device).
– iPhoneographers can send from 1 to 3 images per submission. You can apply more than once.
– All iPhoneographers will be automatically accepted to be featured in the gallery, joining this collective representation of the massive use of the medium; yet, at least 1 out of 3 photographs by every iPhoneographer will be printed and shown.
Open. Send us your best shots! We are open to previous or new works, and they can be observational, conceptual, abstract, figurative, documentary, artistic, curious, sensorial, spontaneous or deeply-thought. Some examples, just to mention some topics, may include: still life, urban experiences, moments, landscapes, portraits, shapes, architecture, people, objects, actions, textures, etc. Yet, we will not accept family photography (meaning the typical â€œSay cheese!â€ image), pets photography or self-portraits (unless itâ€™s truly something unique). Be creative! Show us what this imaginative and innovative outlet is all about.
A non-refundable entry fee of $15.00 is required for submitting up to 3 JPGs. You can submit more than once. Payment should be solely made via PayPal.
