Hello esteemed APUG users!

I am new to this community of analogue users, but I have been shooting for about 12 years and photography has changed my whole life and directed me to pursue art with my whole being. I am thrilled to offer you all this opportunity, and I hope you will sign up to participate in my gallery's first ever juried photo show.

Light Sensitive Material
A Juried Show focusing on Non-Digitally Generated Photographic Processes

December 4th, 2009 - January 2nd, 2010

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: November 23rd, 2009

Read the Call to Artists and Sign up HERE

The goal of this show is to highlight artists working with analogue light sensitive materials (film in all formats, photograms, Van Dycks, cyanotypes, wet plates, Daguerreotypes, direct positives, super 8s, Polaroids, etc) to produce work in an increasingly digital age.

As any one who has ever developed a picture in a dark room (or gotten back an entire roll of accidentally burned out negatives) knows, film and associated analogue processes are essential magic- finicky, delightful, physical. Coaxing out an impossible range of tone a la Ansel Adams or pushing contrast out the window to convey your subject matter can almost be achieved digitally, but the element of time and uncertainty that analogue presents can never be duplicated.

Although the show will only have between 15 and 20 images selected by a jury of 4 local photographers, artists, gallerists and community leaders, all of the work submitted is on a flickr group for you to view and comment on and come to your own conclusions. I encourage you to use this on-line group as a source of inspiration and a resource for meeting your fellow light sensitive material enthusiasts!
