“This two-day event reconstructs a selection of panels from the most recent conference in the series held at Villa La Pietra in Florence, Italy here at New York University’s Washington Square campus.

Black Portraiture[s] II: Imaging the Black Body and Re-staging Histories, explored the impulses, ideas, and techniques undergirding the production of self-representation and desire, and the exchange of the gaze from the 19th century to the present day in fashion, film, art, and the archives. Thus, the seventh conference will revisit that amazing experience that attracted over 800 attendees – an occasion that brought together artists and scholars from an assortment of disciplines and practices and offered comparative perspectives on the historical and contemporary role played by photography, art, film, literature, and music in referencing the image of the black body in the West.

Discussions will focus on aesthetics, style, history, and music in describing a sense of place and identity. The conference will also invite visitors to conduct a diverse visual reading of the notion of a black portrait while challenging conventional perspectives on identity, beauty, cosmopolitanism, and community in Africa and its diaspora.  We hope you will join us in New York City!”

Deadline February 17th: “The Same But Different” Juried by Darren Ching

New York Center for Photographic Art
Call for Entries: The Same But Different 2015-16
Deadline: Wednesday, February 17, 2016 at midnight PDT
Fee: $35 for 3 diptychs, $10 for each additional.

“The New York Center for Photographic Art (NYC4PA) invites photographers world-wide to submit images using any photographic process (print, image transfer, emulsion transfer, encaustic, black and white, color etc.). Winners will receive over $5,000 in cash awards and be featured in the NYC4PA Online Gallery. The Grand Prize winning image will be posted on the NYC4PA home page.

As with the theme, this call is the same but different from most of our others.  We will still have a wonderful juror, great cash prizes, an online gallery and a winners’ catalog. That will be the same.  The difference will be that cash awards will be larger in lieu of the gallery show we usually produce for Prize Winners and Juror Selections.

Juror: Darren Ching, Co-Owner, Klompching Gallery.

Same But Different
The New York Center for Photographic Art is challenging photographers to pair 2 photographs and present them in diptych format (both images in one file).  Not any 2 images; rather 2 that seem the same, but different enough to make each unique.  They may be 2 versions of an image that you processed differently, or the same scene at different times of day.  You might have two portraits of the same person with a feature or features that distinguish the 2 images. The possibilities are endless and the room for interpretation and creativity equally vast.

This call is a little different and one we hope you have fun with when selecting your submissions.

Using the diptych format, send us your pairs of images – two images that are THE SAME BUT DIFFERENT.

Eligibility
This Call for Entry is open worldwide to both amateur and professional photographers.  NYC4PA invites photographers working in all mediums, styles and schools of thought to participate. Experimental and mixed techniques are welcome. Only 2-D work is eligible.

Exhibition and Awards
Grand Prize: One photographer will receive $1500.  The image will be featured on the home page of the NYC4PA website, in the NYC4PA Online Gallery and the exhibition catalog.

  • First Prizes: 3 photographers will each receive $500. Their images will be exhibited in the NYC4PA Online Gallery and in the exhibition catalog.
  • Second Prizes: 3 photographers will each receive $400. Their images will be exhibited in the NYC4PA Online Gallery and in the exhibition catalog.
  • Third Prizes: 3 photographers will each receive $300. Their images will be exhibited in the NYC4PA Online Gallery and in the exhibition catalog.
  • Jurors’ Selections: 20 additional images will be included in the NYC4PA Online Gallery and in the exhibition catalog.
  • Honorable Mention: 20 additional images will be presented with a certificate of honorable mention, listed in the Online Gallery and the exhibition catalog.”
