Work Call Photographic Possibilities


Work Call Photographic Possibilities, Third Edition

Now reviewing images utilizing alternative and classic photographic methods as part of the creation process for possible inclusion in Photographic Possibilities: The Expressive Use of Ideas, Materials and Processes, Third Edition.

In print since 1990, Photographic Possibilities provides an inspiring and reliable gateway about how photo-based imagemakers utilize analog processes to realize their visions.

All photo-based concepts and processes using an analog component in all or part of the creation process are welcome. Contemporary and non-traditional ideas and techniques will be emphasized, but classic fine art methods are most welcome. Major topics of interest include: special films and cameras; contact negative making; alternative and non-silver processes; combination and unique processes; artists books; collage, hand-altered; toning; installations and three-dimensional work; as well as analog-digital crossovers.

This revised, expanded, and full-color edition will be published and internationally distributed by Elsevier’s Focal Press and will feature chapters on:

History of Photographic Printmaking, Special Use Films and Processing, Digital Negative Making, Preparing Your Own Formulas, Black-&-White Film Developer, Printmaking: Equipment, Materials and Processes, Black-and-White Paper Developers, Toning for Visual Effects, Special Cameras and Equipment, Introduction to Some Widely Used Alternative Processes, Altering Photographic Concepts, Safety

1). CD with small, quick opening JPEG files. Please include high-quality, contact size printouts (no more than 10 per page) or small reference prints of all images with identification. Also add all text documents in Word on your CD and provide hardcopy of each text document. Include your name on all material as people in different locations will be reviewing the work.

2). Image checklist with an ID for each work that includes: title, date, size, and process.
