CALL FOR ENTRIES
Submission Deadline:
Saturday, April 13, 2013

OPENING NIGHT RECEPTION:
Saturday, April 27, 2013
7:30 - 10:30pm
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 UP CLOSE & PERSONAL: Macro & Close Up Photography!

Approximately fifty works will be chosen from submitted photographs to be included in the UP CLOSE & PERSONAL exhibition at 1650 Gallery in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. Additional works may also be selected for an online gallery exhibition page.

There is an entry fee of $25 for up to 5 images. Additional entries may be submitted for $5 each.

All accepted entries must submit a high res jpeg (300-360 dpi , minimum size 5x7") to be included in the printed SHOW CATALOG.

We offer free matting and framing for accepted photographs that fit our pre-cut mat sizes for the duration of the exhibition. We have a variety of frames and mats to choose from.

We will also print your photo for a nominal fee if you are accepted into the show and would prefer not to mail a print.
