In a digital age, we are constantly connected and seeking instant gratification; others however, have returned to the magic of the instant film photography. With this process, there are no do-overs; an image is created straight from the camera and develops in the palm of your hand.
Today, many contemporary artists are looking again to the instant film as a viable option for image making. Whether your purpose is instant gratification or to disconnect from cumbersome equipment, we want to see how you are embracing the instant image in a contemporary world.
For this call, Aint-Bad is teaming up with artist and educator, Ashley Jones, to curate an exhibition that features work created by artists utilizing instant film. Selected images will be curated into a variety of exhibitions with the potential of pop-up shows in various cities.
The first installation of this exhibition will take place in the Fall of 2017 at the ASOP (Atlanta School of Photography). The goal will be to travel the exhibition around the south east and then to other cities throughout the country.
The $5 submission fee will go towards logistics and travel costs.
