CALL FOR ENTRY: Storytelling

Some photographers combine a subject with elements such as location, lighting, composition, and process to tell the viewer a story. The viewer is then invited to use his or her creative imagination to fill in the beginning or end. Many such stories are informed by literature, legends, myths, fairytales, music, dreams, film – the possibilities are endless.

We are looking for photographers with the ability to tell a compelling visual narrative through fine art photography. Stories could be told based on landscapes, and do not have to be portraits. Any kind of photo process (digital, analog, alternative) is welcome, as are photographers of all skill levels and locations. Artist statements are not required.

L.A. Photo Curator is proud to have Carolyn Hampton as this month’s curator for the theme of “Storytelling.” Hampton is a Southern California fine art photographer who creates surreal, dreamlike images based on childhood memories, rituals, nightmares, and fantasies. She is currently working on a narrative portrait series entitled “Constructed Fairytales”. Hampton’s award-winning work has been exhibited in galleries, museums and art festivals worldwide, and is held in many private collections, including those of Jock Sturges, Kim & Gina Weston, and the Center for Fine Art Photography.  Her images have been published in books and on dust jackets, on album covers, and in newspapers, magazines, and popular blogs.

Hampton is represented by the Duncan Miller Gallery (www.duncanmillergallery.com) in Santa Monica, California, where she had a solo show, “Childhood Dreams & Memories” during the summer of 2012 (www.blurb.com/books/4334413-childhood-dreams-memories).
