Don’t Take Pictures strives to showcase the work of emerging photographers. In addition to publishing photography in print, and online in our monthly columns, we also publish quarterly online exhibitions.
A photographer’s most reliable subject is his or her self. By turning the camera on oneself, the photographer is brought out from behind their lens, exploring or manipulating their identity. There is a performative aspect to self-portraiture. The photographer invites judgement and critique on not only their artistic message, but also their appearance and demeanor. For this online exhibition, Don’t Take Pictures seeks self-portraits that provide insight into the “second self” that appears when artist becomes subject.
The exhibition will be published online from February 20 — May 21.
Deadline: February 17
- No less than 1024 pixels and no more than 1500 pixels on the longest side.
