LOL: International Photography Exhibition
By PH21 Gallery

International Deadline: November 20, 2017 – PH21 Gallery invites photographers worldwide, 18 years or older,  to submit their original work for a group exhibition themed LOL.

We are looking for submissions from photographers who are interested in this subject and would like to share their work with a wider international audience through the exposure of PH21 Gallery. The theme is broadly construed; we are looking for any photographs whose subject or pictorial solution results in a funny or playful image. We are interested in all possible creative photographic interpretations of the theme.

Photography is a serious business, and so is humour. To join in the year-end festivities, PH21 Gallery is seeking submissions that explore the funny and playful side of photography. The source of humour may reside in the subject of the image itself. However, the specific use of the medium, combined with the creativity of photographers may also result in playful images in which the effect does not come from what is being depicted but from the way the subject is photographed. There are countless photographic means to create pictorial humour; from the surprising use of perspective, the particular way of framing a scene, the juxtaposition and incongruity of the elements of the image, double exposure through the creation of photomontage, visual puns or optical illusion, the possibilities are endless. Humour, too, comes in many different forms and kinds. For this exhibition, we seek any take on pictorial humour that makes the viewer smile or laugh or grin. We invite the funny, the absurd, the witty, the wry, the dark and the light as well as the ironic, the jocular, the sarcastic, the political, the mischievous, the ambiguous, the thought-provoking, just to name a few.

Works will be on display December 21, 2017 – January 13, 2018.
