International Deadline: November 18, 2018 – Ever
wonder why most photos are so… boring? Well, it’s probably because the
people in the photo are fully clothed. It’s pretty much an accepted fact
that people who spend a lot of time wearing their underwear loud and
proud are happier, make more money, and are far more popular than the
rest of us. Ask the Victoria’s Secret models or those Calvin Klein dudes
with the tidy-whiteys. Heck even the guys and gals in the Sears catalog
are having more fun than all of us. It’s a fact, Jack! Good things
happen when the outerwear goes away and the underwear is here to stay!
And we all know cameras and underwear go together like peas and carrots.
So grab your trusty Nikon and let’s see your Uncle Sal watching the
Mets in his boxers. Or your bookie ‘Fast Eddie’ in his sleeveless tee
and Calvin Klein’s. Or Sylvia from the diner in her favorite bra.
Whatever you do, make it count and make it so you like it so we can
all be proud of you. Because art matters. Because you need to push your
boundaries. Because this time at 1650 Gallery, the clothes come off and
the guard comes down to reveal the art that lies just beneath as we
present ‘Underneath It All: The Underwear Show’.
Approximately fifty works will be chosen from submitted photos to be included in the ‘Underneath It All‘ group photography exhibition at 1650 Gallery in Los Angeles.
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.
