Open internationally for lens-based creatives, LACP’s open call for the annual Project Exhibition invites submissions for photographic projects that explore our relationships with the real, photography’s ability to re-define how we capture our memories and our views of the future. What if we think about our relationships with the photographic image not through its presumed connection to the real, but through its capacity to capture an imagined view of the world? As AI generators have been recently upending the conversation around the viability of the photographic image, LACP’s annual Project Exhibition will remind that the question of manipulation has actually been at the core of photographic practice since its inception in 1839. Between reality and imagination, truth and lies, from ghost photographs to digital technologies, our field is constantly being re-defined by new developments that stabilize how we understand photography and how the world sees our field. The selected works will be featured online and in a virtual exhibition opening scheduled for Thursday, November 16, 7 pm PST, 2023.
