Five photographs to tell a story or present a unified idea… One entry, One price
This Member exhibition provides that rare opportunity to show a collection or series of images to tell a story or present a unified idea. Whether you have a personal story, or a set of images with a unifying theme, this juried call is your chance to exhibit your project. This Call provides an opportunity to share a small body of work, and is a great opportunity to launch a new body of work, without the expense of mounting a solo exhibition. New for 2022, this year’s exhibition includes the opportunity to have your entered work reviewed by the juror in a live (via Zoom) open group review session.
Project reviews will be provided in a live Zoom group review session with the Juror, Sandra Eisert. A selection of projects, including all the works selected for exhibition, will be discussed in this open session. Attendance to this group review session will be open to all the entrants and RICPA Members. This is a chance to take a deep dive into the selection process, sequencing, editing, what works and thoughts on what makes projects stronger. This session is intended to be informative to all viewers with an emphasis on what makes a project stronger.
About the Juror: Sandra Eisert is on the board of The International Leica Society (LHSA) and the National Press Photographers Foundation and she is all about storytelling.
When I look at pictures I am an advocate for the audience and a cheerleader for the photographer because I think we need to understand more about one another. Stories connect us – and these days after being separated so much, we especially need connection, we need to share each others’ experiences. Photographs can usually carry essential human, emotional information far better than words. But words are important; statements or captions help us refine and test the effectiveness of our images and offer the audience context that images can’t…
Entry is free for Supporting Members, $35 for a set of 5 images for Members at all other levels.
This exhibition is open to all current members and is designed to provide members the chance to have their work featured rather than just included in an exhibition. Work submitted will be juried as a set, each member is eligible to enter five images, that if selected will be exhibited together. This is a chance to present work that carries across a group of images or exhibit a larger selection of images than a typical member show or call for entry allows.
