Call for Entry: Both Sides of the Lens
Theme: Both Sides of the Lens: Self-Portraiture
A photographer’s most reliable subject is his or her self. By turning the camera on oneself the photographer is brought out from behind their lens, presenting themselves to the world as both artist and subject. Self-portraiture is often used to explore and manipulate identity. The photographer invites judgement and critique on not only their artistic message, but also their appearance and demeanor. For this exhibition, The Kiernan Gallery seeks self-portraits that provide insight into the artist; their stories, struggles and triumphs.
- Up to 30 images will be exhibited in The Kiernan Gallery in Lexington, Virginia (April 10 – May 6, 2012). Up to an additional 40 images will be selected for exhibition in the online gallery.
