Rebekah Jacob Gallery, in Charleston, South Carolina, is holding an open call for entries to their exhibition, “Ways of Seeing: Phoneography.” The exhibit will open on July 12, 2012 in their new space at 502 King Street. The installation will include up to 500 photographs selected by the curatorial staff of Rebekah Jacob Gallery.
In the press release, gallery owner Rebekah Jacob notes that “The most accessible of the visual arts, photography has been pushed even further into mainstream culture as the smartphone has become what noted photographer Annie Leibovitz calls ‘the snapshot camera of today.’ Although democratic in the opportunity to point, shoot, edit, and share, this innovation is rapidly transforming classical photograph into a revolutionary social phenomenon—and the newest artistic medium.”
“iPhone images are the intersection of creativity and technology,” says Jacob. “Although in its infancy as a medium now, I am fascinated by the immediacy and intimacy of iPhoneography, and expect that this method will soon be firmly embedded in the commercial marketplace.”
If you want your work considered for the exhibit, you may submit up to ten images taken and exclusively edited with an IOS device.
Digitally send submissions of square or rectangular JPEG files to: [email protected] by midnight on June 3, 2012. Each entry must include the photographer’s name, phone number, and email address. The complete submission requirements are posted on the gallery’s website: www.rebekahjacobgallery.com
