International Deadline: June 24, 2018 – 1650 Gallery is calling for entries for its upcoming Close Up Photography
exhibition. Approximately fifty works will be chosen from submitted
photos to be included in the group exhibition in Los Angeles.
They say context is everything, and nowhere is it more true than
close-up (macro) photography. If photography’s basic reason for being
(de etre) is to show the unseen and overlooked, then nowhere is there
more photographic opportunity then getting down and dirty with a macro
lens and documenting the flotsam and jetsam of the human experience.
Ernst Haas did it with soda cans crushed on the street and peeling
paint. Other photographers close in to shoot flowers and gems, nails and
bullets, or raindrops and snowflakes. And of course there is the whole
macabre world of bugs and bacteria. Whatever you shoot, whether the
cornea of your lover’s eye or the time worn face of Thomas Jefferson on a
quarter, or the tiny gears inside your grandfathers watch, send it in
to 1650 and let it ride, because this month we get all up into
photography’s grill with CLOSE UP Photography!
Open to photographers worldwide of all skill levels.
Best In Show, 2nd Place and 3rd Place will be awarded and posted online
after the show opening. Award winning photos will be featured on the
show page and Best In Show winners will have a small portfolio of their
work (up to 10 images) featured in our 1650 Spotlight gallery of
All Awards winners will also be featured in our 1650 Gallery
newsletter, which is broadcast via email to our mailing list. Getting
the word out about artists we’re excited about helps you do more great
work, helps us show more great work, and helps keep the often insular
world of fine art photography more diverse and vibrant.
