Exposure Vol. 50: 2
Deadline: March 1
The Exposure journal is now accepting targeted submissions for the Fall 2017 issue on the theme of INFLUENCE. How do influences affect the work we make, the ideas we build upon, the way we teach our students how to think and how to make images? What constitutes productive influence? Is there such a thing as bad or dangerous influence in art making? What kinds of influences occur with artists and thinkers that work in photography that are outside the sphere of the genre? How does what is happening in photography meaningfully influence people working in disciplines seemingly removed from photography? How does influence build upon itself in a creative practice, or, conversely, how does it sometimes generate its opposite?
In the history of SPE and the Exposure journal, there was no larger influence than that of our founder, Nathan Lyons. The SPE family has mourned the passing of this legendary and most influential of figures, and the Fall 2017 issue of the journal will contain features that examine the scope and enduring legacy of his influence, especially as regards his work as an educator, curator and arts activist. If you have material or a proposal related to Nathan Lyons' work and life, please contact the editor.
The above represents just a small sample of possibilities on this theme. Essays, conversations, meditations, reviews and portfolios that examine the topic of Influence will all be considered for publication. Please DO NOT send submissions on subjects unrelated to the stated theme. Work submitted prior to January 30, 2017 will be given priority consideration for publication.
