Call for Entries: AAP Magazine #22 STREETS

Encyclopedia Britannica defines Street photography has "a genre that records everyday life in a public place."

Photographers have been documenting their environment since the invention of photography. The image "View of the Boulevard du Temple" by Louis-Jacques-Mandé Daguerre, shows a Parisian street in 1838. Later encouraged by improvements in the portability and quality of cameras many photographers decided to record urban life. Charles Nègre, Eugene Atget, Alfred Stieglitz, Andre Kertesz, Berenice Abbott, Henri Cartier Bresson, Brassaï, Walker Evans, Robert Frank, Diane Arbus, Vivian Maier, Garry Winogrand, Lee Friedlander, William Eggleston... are amongst the many iconic photographers who captured changes in the fast-paced world of life in towns and cities.

Capturing the essence of the urban lifestyle is now both a popular form of art and an important medium of communicating the heart and soul of a society and its people.

Send us a cohesive body of work or portfolio - capturing the weird and wonderful moments unfolding around you! The subject is completely up to you. Any capture method or process, whether digital or analog, including monochromatic toning, is welcome.

Winners will receive $1,000 in cash awards, their winning image(s) or full portfolio published in AAP Magazine #22, extensive press coverage and global recognition.

All winners will have their work published in the 22nd 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.

London: Richard Estes Voyages

Newport Street Gallery
10 September - 12 December 2021


 
Celebrated American artist Richard Estes to receive first major UK show at Damien Hirst’s Newport Street Gallery this autumn Newport Street Gallery will present ‘Richard Estes: Voyages’, the first major exhibition of the artist’s work in the UK, opening on 10 September 2021. The show, curated by Andrew Heyward, will include forty-five paintings made over the last thirty years. While Estes is best known for his paintings of New York, the London show will also feature paintings made following trips to Europe, Asia, Africa and Antarctica.

“I am thrilled to be able to bring Richard Estes’ first retrospective to the UK. Richard is a living icon of American painting and this will be a rare opportunity to see his mesmerising works in person”, said Damien Hirst. “I’ve loved his work since I was shown it when I was 13 by my art teacher in high school, Mr Wood. While trends and movements come and go, Richard has stayed true to his vision and singular approach to painting for more than fifty years and I find this unwavering commitment to be a true inspiration. While Richard’s much-loved paintings of New York will be central to the show, the lesser-known works made from his travels around the world are a revelation and I’m super excited to include them in his show and to be helping to give a broader understanding of Richard’s work to a British audience.”

The exhibition will be accompanied by a fully illustrated, hardbound monograph with a new text by Patterson Sims and a conversation with Richard Estes and Hans Ulrich Obrist.

Amsterdam: The Constructed Image

 The Ravestijn Gallery cordially invites you to The Constructed Image, a group exhibition that brings together nineteen (inter)national and experimental artists who showcase photography’s ability to not only reproduce but also be a source for something new.

These diverse approaches are brought together in an exhibition that is itself constructed. Specially for The Constructed Image, temporary walls will be installed in the gallery, dividing the existing area and creating new spaces that echo the exhibition’s underpinning theme. It will also bring the artists into fresh proximity, in turn kindling new associations and comparisons between them.

As individuals, each artist offers their own, markedly different perspective on what it means to construct an image. As a whole, the exhibition bears witness to the fact that today photography is more than it has ever been. It is no longer only a flat end bound by tradition but a beginning to new ways of imagining.
