Exhibition Opportunity: Still Life

Lineage ©Joshua Meier

Don’t Take Pictures exists to showcase the work of emerging photographers. In addition to publishing photographers in print, and online in our monthly columns, we also publish online quarterly exhibitions.

From Dutch masters’ paintings to contemporary photography, the still life holds an important place in art history. This genre allows artists complete control over their subjects, providing an unparalleled ability to manipulate the scene. Often symbolic, the objects in a still life assume their own character and identities. An entire story can be told by the arrangement of a few items. Toys, collectibles, and household goods become surrogates, and natural life is given a persona. Don’t Take Pictures seeks evocative and symbolic still life photographs that show ordinary objects in a new way.

The exhibition will be published online from February 24 – May 24

Deadline: February 21
