It’s Still Life.
Rayko Photo Center, and the fabulous, entertaining and talented Ann Jastrab are putting out the call for entries an upcoming show, based on inanimate objects and spaces. Entries are due by 25 June, 2008 – so set those alarms and reminders so you don’t miss out.
The basic details –
The competition is open to artists photographing inanimate objects and interior spaces. Subject
matter can be anything as commonplace as a pear (and man, are there some amazing pear
pictures out there!) or as strange as a dead animal, perhaps too literal. Subjects may be either
natural: food, flowers, plants, rocks, shells, hair clippings, and so on. They can also be man-
made: books, toys, glasses, vases, fishing lures, etc. Settings may be artificial/set-up or simply
found and perfect. There’s a lot left up to interpretation…as well as artistic freedom!
