Call for Entries: One Hour Photo Project

American University Museum at the Katzen Arts Center
Washington, D.C.
May 8 – June 6, 2010

One Hour Photo distills the photograph to the ultimate limited edition: 60 minutes. During the exhibition, photographic works will be projected for one hour each, after which they will never be seen again, by anyone, in any form. Each work will exist only in the limited moments of perception, in the individual and collective experience, then memory, of the observers.

One Hour Photo complicates the myth of photography as preservation, manifests the tension between the permanence of the medium and the impermanence of time, and subverts the profit model of the edition and the print.

We seek previously unpublished / undisplayed photographs or photographic-based work. Work selected will be projected for exactly one hour during the exhibition, with the understanding that it will not be shown, reproduced or sold from that moment forward.

Although there are no strict subject matter or stylistic guidelines, One Hour Photo is particularly interested in work that engages in dialogue with the themes that the concept naturally raises: ephemerality, memory, anti-artifact, loss, nostalgia, magic, time, disappearance, dissolution, whispers, traces, ghosts, etc. Imagine your work as a fleeting projection, in a room of one or many or none, as a vanishing point on a vanishing horizon, existing for 60 minutes before disappearing forever. If that excites you, please submit.

Submit at www.onehourphotoproject.com.
Deadline: March 31 Midnight
There is no fee to submit.
