This Deadline Expired: Wednesday, May 15, 2019

Summer 2019 exhibition at Gravy Studio & Gallery in Philadelphia, PA
Expanded online exhibition on In the In-Between https://www.inthein-between.com/

$25 early bird entry fee March 1 – 31st
$35 regular entry from April 1 – May 15th

The vast majority of photographs we see in our day-to-day lives present idealized versions of their subject matters, often making the world seem cleaner, more orderly, and more beautiful than it actually is. It’s difficult to grasp the profound influence we are subject to within our inescapable media-diets of beautiful images that offer promises of something better.

How can photography be used to reflect on notions of paradise, desire, and fantasy? What roles do these promises play in our daily lives, and in our current societal conditions? What’s the value of idyllic spaces? What is the cultural and personal value of a photograph that makes the world look better than it is? Who benefits from notions of paradise, and who doesn’t? Where do we want to escape to, and what are we running from?

Gravy Studio and In the In-Between are seeking photographic work of any process that explores notions of paradise, idealization, fantasy, and escape.
