Deadline April 14th: Another New York – Call for Brooklyn Based Photographers

Call for Entries: Another New York

Deadline: Sunday, April 14, 2013 at midnight
No submission fee.

“ArtBridge is currently accepting submissions for Another New York, a photography-based public exhibition that invites Brooklyn-based photographers to submit small series’ of works in response to the project brief below. All works selected for exhibition will be exhibited large-scale* (up to 16 feet high) at the Atlantic Yards development in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn, beginning in July of 2013.

New York City is one of the most heavily photographed cities in the world. From tourist snapshots of Times Square, too-often derivative street photography and Instagram reaching limitless heights, many photographers have described today’s NYC as a dying photographic vantage point with nothing new to say. This outdoor exhibition, Another New York looks to change this pessimism by presenting photography that captures New York City with a new and unexpected eye. Scheduled to be unveiled in Summer 2013 on the construction fencing and scaffolding at the site of the Barclays Center*, in Brooklyn, NY, this exhibition, juried and curated by Jon Feinstein and internationally-renowned Brooklyn-based artist Mickalene Thomas, challenges photographers born, living, or working in Brooklyn to help us fall in love with New York City again.

Brooklyn based artist, Mickalene Thomas and Jon Feinstein, curator, photographer, the Co-Founder of Humble Arts Foundation, and Manager of Marketing and Partnerships at Shutterstock.

June 11th, NYC: MediaStorm Premiere “A Shadow Remains” & “Rite of Passage”

World Premiere of Phillip Toledano’s A Shadow Remains and Maggie Steber’s Rite of Passage
Monday, June 11, 2012, doors at 6:30, films at 7:30 pm
Free and open to the public. RSVP required.

Phillip Toledano and Maggie Steber are both celebrated photographers who turned their cameras on themselves and the ones closest to them at a time of deep introspection—the end of their parents’ lives.

While both originally started photographing these events for their personal albums, their experiences magnified in importance over the years spent with their aging parents. As time passed, caring for their parents brought them through a process of self discovery that taught them as much about themselves as the loved ones for which they were caring.

In the end, both Phillip and Maggie were left with bodies of work which relate not only their personal journeys, but speak to universal themes of love, life and family. MediaStorm is proud to have partnered with both Phillip and Maggie to tell their individual stories.

On June 11 MediaStorm will present both films for the first time. After the screening Phillip and Maggie will be available for a question and answer session about their experiences.
