Darkroom Gallery Call for Entries “Seities & Selves”
Self as subject, one’s uniqueness in scope, portraiture by design
“Seity” is an uncommon word which, as defined by Webster, is “A quality peculiar to oneself; selfhood; individuality”. It could be seen as the essential quality of the true self-portrait: an expression of what makes the subject unique and defines her/his character in some way. In this age of the ubiquitous throwaway selfie it’s an even greater and more worthwhile challenge to create a self portrait that expresses one’s uniqueness and individuality. And that’s the challenge we’re putting forth for this exhibition: to present an image that defines an aspect of your true essence.
