Exhibition
This open call invites submissions for analog images by photographers worldwide. Exploring our relationships with the past, this call considers how analog procedures and experimentations inform our digital, networked existence and continue to push photographic practice forward. The heated discussions about the impact of AI on photographic technology, practice and copyright highlight the growing resurgence of analog photography during the past decade: Photography brands, once on the brink of bankruptcy were able to turn a new leaf. New models of film cameras are rolling into the market, and a generation born into the online universe cannot wait to get to the darkroom. What captivates us in the singular photographic image? Can we consider contemporary questions about manipulation in the context of analog photo-making? What can analog photography teach us about the future and past of photography? The selected works will be featured in both a virtual exhibition and a in-person exhibition, opening scheduled for Saturday, January 27, 2024, 3-6 pm PST @ LACP, 252 S. Los Angeles St, Los Angeles, CA 90012

Prizes
1st Place winner will receive $1,000; 2nd Place winner will receive a $500 LACP gift card; 3rd Place winner will receive $250 LACP gift card. Honorable Mentions: Other selected artists will receive honorable mentions.

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.
