L.A. Photo Curator Call for Entry
Theme: ‘Lost at Sea’ curated by Michael Behlen (Founder of Analog Forever Magazine)
Behlen says, “Our constant bombardment by all things electronic has left us marooned on an island made up of likes, shares, website metrics. This new life our society lives often seems like one lost at sea. As photographers, we don’t need rescuing or an s.o.s. signal. We have developed a way to connect ourselves to our surroundings which allows us to see past these feelings of isolation by using our camera lens.
For this exhibition, we are looking to see the places, people, activities, and things that help you escape from the daily hustle and allow you to live peacefully on your own personal island. The images submitted can be of, or represent, the things that make you feel alive. No interpretation of this theme is wrong. After all, we are all trying to survive our modern lives marooned in a sea of hyperconnectivity.”
10% of artist entry fees goes to the curator’s choice of charity. Behlen says,
“My pick for charity: Shriners Hospitals for Children. This hospital is instrumental in providing the best care for children in their specialty areas of Orthopaedics, Burn Care, Spinal Cord Injury, and Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate, regardless of a family’s ability to pay.”
Another 10% will go to the first place winner’s choice of charity.
