What We’ve Found: The Portrait

Hello again! SO excited to introduce the next theme for our monthly curated web post on Aint–Bad – What We’ve Found. We’re expanding the potential to have your work recognized and admired – we’re thrilled.

So, what’s the next theme? THE PORTRAIT.

Jake Mein

This month we want to see how you define the portrait. Show us what makes a portrait stand out among the millions of images being generated daily. Is self-portraiture still relevant in contemporary photography? Does a portrait need to be taken with a traditional large format camera, or will a cell phone image suffice in today’s fast-paced society? Regardless of your interpretation, we want to see your best portrait!

Dig through your hard drives, archives, whatever, and submit work that you feel fits within the given theme/concept. That’s all you need to do! No artist statements, no social security numbers, tax records, etc. All we want is a nice, relevant photograph or two, or three! Oh, and your name and website. It’s that simple!

Please follow the submission guidelines CLOSELY. If you fail to send the correct formatting/information, your work will not be considered.

In about one month, the submissions will be curated into a post with a statement and exploration of the work through the themes. It’s like a little online gallery (without the Hors d’oeuvres).

We’ll let you know if you’ve made it into What We’ve Found by May 28th!
