Watson Studio Gallery and the Texas Photographic Society
are pleased to announce:
Call For Entries: Fantastic Plastic
Submission Deadline June 27, 2009
About the Theme: Fantastic Plastic
“To hold, point and shoot a (plastic) Diana camera implies a conscious decision to relinquish control. To concentrate your creative powers on capturing the moment and telling a story — rather than fiddling with a bunch of knobs and levers.” This quote from the Society of Lomography sums up the goal of this exhibition. Fantastic Plastic will feature the work of selected avant-garde artists who challenge themselves to create compelling images with plastic cameras and other “lo-fi” cameras such as Holga, Lomo, pin-hole, Lensbabies lenses, cell-phone cameras, home-made cameras, TtV with vintage cameras, etc. Watson Studio Gallery in partnership with the Texas Photographic Society invites and encourages all photographers and digital illustrators working in all media, to participate in this exhibition.
The exhibition is open to all domestic and international photographers working with digital or traditional photography, digital/photo illustration or combinations of these media as long as a plastic or lo-fi camera/lens was involved in the process.
