Primal Sight Open Call for Contemporary B&W Photography – In the In-Between

Primal Sight Open Call for Contemporary B&W Photography - In the In-Between

Deadline: January 12, 2020
Entry fee: $6
Prizes: participation in the online exhibition

In the In-Between seeks contemporary B&W photography in all its forms for its next online exhibition. Primal Sight will be juried by NYC-based curator and writer, Efrem Zelony-Mindell.

The world of color has no curiosity because it is literal. Regardless of differences, there is something universal in how humans try to make sense of the world. We become comfortable or unsure and Black-and-White imagery becomes something else. There is a feral looker sinking into the eyes of such frames. They are unimaginably photogenic. These images are not looked at; they brood at you.”
– Efrem Zelony-Mindell

Primal Sight is the next iteration of an ongoing curatorial project by the juror. Its original version appeared in issue 26 of DEAR DAVE Magazine. All artists not previously included in this project are welcome to submit.

This exhibition is open to all photographic styles and techniques (in keeping with the theme of B&W).

Please submit up to 20 jpegs sized to 72dpi and 1000 on the longest side. Images must not exceed 1MB in size.
