Close Up Photography Exhibition
By 1650 Gallery

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 photographic excellence.

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.

There is an entry fee of $40 for up to 5 images.. Additional entries may be submitted for $5 each.

Visit us for complete details and easy online application.

Selected photographs will be posted on the website within one week after the deadline, along with instructions for submitting work for exhibition. An email will also be sent out when the collection is posted.

Selected artists may choose to offer their work for sale. The gallery retains 50% of the sale price.

Photographs have the opportunity to be part of an online silent charity auction to benefit worthy causes. 1650 encourages all accepted artists to participate but it is not mandatory. We will provide additional info to accepted artists who fall into this category.
