Deadline: 29 July 2019. All mental and physical processes are subject to errors, and photographic creative and technical processes are no exception to this rule. Photographers may carefully plan their compositions, but even the most thoroughly constructed situations might surprise us with some unforeseeable element. Analogue and digital technical processes are also prone to errors that modify the image in unexpected ways. Some types of glitches occur spontaneously, while others are intentionally prompted by using equipment or technology that randomly or systematically produces them. A glitch may occur in the theme, the production method or in the material of the image as well, and it could be present in the picture or in the viewer’s eye. In this call we understand glitches in a wide sense, ranging from the unexpected in the process of composing images to the technological errors that modify the final image in all sorts of intended or unintended ways.
PH21 Gallery invites photographers to submit their work for a group exhibition themed Glitch. We are looking for submissions from all photographers who are interested in this theme, and would like to share their work with a wider international audience through the exposure of PH21 Gallery. The theme is broadly construed, as glitches may occur at all points of the creative and technical processes of photography. Indeed, we are interested in all possible creative photographic interpretations of the theme.
One juror’s choice and up to three honourable mentions will be selected and announced. The juror’s choice receives three free entries for any upcoming themed group exhibition calls at PH21 Gallery. (Each free entry includes up to 15 images.)
