London, UK National Portrait Gallery: Victorian Giants: The Birth of Art Photography

This major new exhibition brings together, for the first time, the works of four of the most celebrated figures in art photography, Lewis Carroll (1832–98), Julia Margaret Cameron (1815–79), Oscar Rejlander (1813–75) and Clementina Hawarden (1822-65). These four artists would come to embody the very best in photography of the Victorian era. Their experimental approach to picture-making and radical attitudes towards photography have informed artistic practice ever since.
Featuring striking portraits of sitters such as Charles Darwin, Alice Liddell, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Thomas Carlyle, George Frederick Watts, Ellen Terry and Alfred, Lord Tennyson.

New Call for Entry: LIGHT

Our first printed issue of AAP Magazine will feature the best projects showcasing the theme "Light". Light is what allows us to see. It is what shapes and colors every object, creates depth, mood and mystery. Daylight, candlelight, inner-light, traffic light... Play with light!

"Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography."
- George Eastman

Where would the photographer be without light, the basic tool of all photographers?
From the blackest night to the brightest day, the deepest shadows to the starkest highlights, send us your images that illustrate your understanding and response to light!
This can be natural light or artificial light, everything from an ode to Josef Sudek to a nod to Joel Meyerowitz and his wonderful mixed lighting color photographs. The time of day and type of light often determine the mood and the feeling of the photograph.

Send us your images - series are more than welcome - both where light may not just influence the pictures, but where it may also be the subject solely.
Be inspired. Be curious. Be fearless. We are ready.

Whether in portrait, landscape, fashion, street or any other form of photography - classic or experimental: We're open to all genres and we want to publish your best work in our first issue of AAP Magazine.

Winners will receive $1,000 in cash awards, their winning image(s) or full portfolio published in AAP Magazine Vol.1, extensive press coverage and global recognition.

All winners will have their work published in the first printed issue of AAP Magazine, a free copy of the magazine and their portfolio showcased in the Winners Gallery of www.all-about-photo.com.

Basquiat Collaborator Creates Mural at Art Wynwood to Honor Victims of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Shooting

Street artists Al Diaz, Danny Minnick and Edwin Baker created a special mural on the Art Wynwood tent today to address the recent school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Al Diaz is a New York based artist and along with Jean-Michel Basquiat was the creator of SAMO, and he flew to Miami to create the piece and pay his respects to the tragedy that occurred on Wednesday February 14th, 2018.


In addition, in response to the tragedy, Art Miami LLC will donate half of all box office proceeds generated during Art Wynwood to victims and their families of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School tragedy. 

Nick Korniloff, Founder, Art Wynwood, comments, “Due to the unimaginable tragedy that unfolded on Wednesday February 14 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL, half of the box office proceeds made during this weekend’s Art Wynwood fair will be donated to support the victims and their families. Myself and the fair’s ownership team are approaching and encouraging all of our 70 galleries and vendors to make additional donations. Resorts World Miami LLC, the property owner of One Herald Plaza where this year’s fair is taking place, has already committed to a generous donation, as has Eventstar Structures, Spuntino Catering, Platform International LLC, and Accurate Event Group, and we feel confident that many more of our colleagues and friends in the compassionate international art world will join us. We encourage everyone to donate to the official GoFundMe site for the Marjory Stoneman High School FUND ME PAGE. Art Wynwood will make its donation following the fairs closing on Monday February 19th, 2018.”
