Deadline October 7th: Humble Arts Foundation Call for Entries: “Tough Turf: New Directions in Street Photography”

Humble Arts Foundation
Call for Entries: Tough Turf: New Directions in Street Photography
Deadline: October 7, 2013, Midnight

“For the past 8 years, Humble Arts Foundation has been championing what’s “new” in Art Photography. At times rivaling commercial aspirations, we’re interested in work that makes us twitch and keeps us excited about the future of Photography.

For the launch of our new site and group show 39, we’re producing an online exhibition of street photography made since 2000 that encourages us to rethink the genre entirely. How have today’s photographers brought the traditions of Cartier Bresson, Diane Arbus, Helen Levitt and countless others into the 21st Century? Have smart-phones, instagram and digital technology changed the nature of the “Decisive Moment?”

Curated by Jon Feinstein & Amani Olu

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.
