Call for Entries: Beyond the Assignment

Beyond the Assignment

Every now and then you have an assignment that sticks with you and you can’t get it out of your head – so much so that you go back, over and over again, on your own dime, becoming more involved and personally committed, exploring the subjects more deeply each time. Or maybe there’s that story you never could find a home for in the mainstream media, but you knew it was important and did it anyways.

For the January issue of FractionJ we’re looking for these types of long-term, well developed and ‘personal’ journalistic / documentary explorations of the world around us. Work that goes beyond the assignment. Please note: Photographer can be concerned and involved, but stories still must abide by generally accepted journalistic conventions and standards.

This issue will be curated by Jason Houston of Orion Magazine.
Details:
- the deadline is January 2, 2011
-Please send 5 photographs (no bigger than 1000 pixels wide) and a short statement about the work to fractionj@gmail.com with the subject line “beyond the assignment”

Fraction partners with The New Mexico Museum of Art

New Mexico Museum of Art

Fraction Magazine partners in presenting Earth Now,
Museum’s on-line exhibition of contemporary American photographers
Brook Reynolds, Ultimate, 2007

Santa Fe, NM (November 29, 2010) – Earth Now: American Photographers and the Environment opens at the New Mexico Museum of Art April 8, 2011 and its online component can now be found on the web at http://earthnow.nmartmuseum.org.

Fraction Magazine, the on-line magazine of contemporary photography, will partner with the museum in presenting and expanding the exhibition’s web site.

Katherine Ware, exhibition curator and the museum’s Curator of Photography, selected works for Earth Now showing how a range of contemporary landscape photographers are responding to some of the most pressing  environmental issues of our time, such as energy consumption, changing agricultural practices, toxic waste, and the human relationship to animals and the land. Twelve photographers will be highlighted in the Earth Now on-line exhibition.

The museum’s first socially optimized exhibition will showcase some 104 images – from Ansel Adams and Eliot Porter who place the exhibition in historical context to Subhankar Banerjee, Daniel Handal, Brad Temkin, Dornith Doherty and Sharon Stewart. There will also be a blog, a wide range of videos, podcasts of lectures, and links to other sites. The Earth Now site itself will be its own ecosystem remaining an active forum through the run of the gallery exhibition ending August 29, 2011 with frequent additions of fresh content.

One prominent link on the site will take the viewer from Earth Now to Fraction Magazine. The magazine’s participation greatly enlarges the exhibition’s scope – presenting expanded portfolios of the artists in Earth Now; a related exhibition of photographic work selected by Fraction Magazine founder and editor, David Bram; and, an additional selection of works Ware discovered after curating Earth Now, with an emphasis on New Mexico photographers.

This partnership recognizes the evolution toward an on-line presence taking place in traditional media and museum exhibitions. Speaking for the museum, Ware comments that; “We are exploring new territory with this on-line exhibition preceding the gallery opening in April. One of our goals is to give viewers a chance to engage with the photographs over time and to encourage them to comment and respond. We want the museum’s resources to be available to everyone and the site, along with the opportunity to collaborate with David Bram and Fraction Magazine, open up the conversation to a broader audience.”

Bram said of his partnering with the museum on this exhibition; “I am thrilled to be working with the Museum and with Katherine Ware, as I believe this is a monumental show that will once again put New Mexico on the global map for contemporary landscape photography.  I am also excited about the ability to extend the physical show to the on-line world, and to bring more museum quality photography to the growing Fraction audience.” Fraction Magazine can be accessed at www.fractionmagazine.com.

###

The New Mexico Museum of Art was founded in 1917 as the Art Gallery of the Museum of New Mexico . Housed in a spectacular Pueblo Revival building designed by I. H. and William M. Rapp, it was based on their New Mexico building at the Panama-California Exposition (1915). The museum’s architecture inaugurated what has come to be known as ” Santa Fe Style.” For nearly 100 years, the Museum has celebrated the diversity of the visual arts and the legacy of New Mexico as a cultural crossroads by collecting and exhibiting work by leading artists from New Mexico and elsewhere. This tradition continues today with a wide-array of exhibitions with work from the world’s leading artists. The New Mexico Museum of Art brings the art of New Mexico to the world and the art of the world to New Mexico.  The New Mexico Museum of Art is a division of the New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs.
  
Fraction Magazine (www.fractionmagazine.com) features the best of contemporary photography, bringing together diverse bodies of work by established and emerging artists from around the globe. Each monthly on-line issue focuses on a central theme, creating an implicit dialogue between differing photographic perspectives. Fraction also offers in-depth photography book reviews. For his outstanding work, David Bram, Fraction’s editor and publisher, was selected as the 2010 recipient of the Griffin Museum’s Rising Star Award. Bram is also a fine art photographer and juries many competitions. Fraction Magazine is based in Albuquerque, NM

Moments of Being

There is roughly 48 hours left to enter the Wallspace Gallery portrait competition – Moments of Being.

The deadline is November 20 at 11:59pm PST


The Details

General Information
The submission period for our fifth annual juried show – New Directions 2011 will be open until 20 November 2010.
New Directions seeks to discover new talent in the world of photography. Past shows have included the works of Joseph O. Holmes, Priya Kambli and Joelle Jensen. Each year emerging artists have an opportunity to have their work seen by a nationally recognized figure in the field of photography. From these entries a cohesive show emerges for display at Wall Space in January, and this year we are excited to the opportunity to show ND11 in our gallery in Santa Barbara and Seattle.
All submissions for this exhibition are considered for gallery representation. wall space directors and associates will review the work, however the galleries review will not affect the outcome of the selection process.

Juror 
David Bram is a fine art photographer and the editor, founder, and curator of Fraction Magazine, an online venue dedicated to fine art photography, showcasing the work of both emerging and very established fine art photographers. Fraction Magazine is now published on a monthly basis. Fraction Magazine was founded in 2008 and is currently on it’s nineteenth issue and has shown portfolios from more than 120 photographers.
David has been reviewing portfolios at various events including Review LA, Review Santa Fe, PhotoNOLA, Atlanta Celebrates Photography and Fotofest. He was also a juror for Review Santa Fe in 2010 as well as a juror for Critical Mass in 2009 and 2010. In September 2010, David was the recipient of the Griffin Museum of Photography’s Rising Star Award.

Prospectus for New Directions 2011  
The Portrait: “Moments of Being”
As photographers, we look for faces and expressions that tell stories. We look for character. We look for emotion.
We look for the hook, that moment of being that creates a compelling portrait. Like a modern physiognomy, a portrait tells a story equal parts subject and photographer in a single moment.
As the curator of this show, I will be looking for portraits that are edgy and daring. I want more than the traditional head shot. I want to see work that pushes the boundaries of what is normally called a portrait. (Please note: For this show, my interests are not in photo-journalistic photographs of the homeless, the needy, or third world subjects)
Photographs by Emmet Gowin and Sally Mann (for example) show a trust and a relationship between the photographer and the subject. There is a connection that is clear to the viewer; this is what I am looking for. I will also be looking for unique styles and interesting compositions. The images might be quiet, honest, sexually charged, or pure. These portraits, color or black and white, should convey a unique and powerful moment of life.
For more information please contact the gallery.
