Family Photographs

Family Photographs

This Deadline Expired: Sunday, September 23, 2018

Flower City Arts Center is seeking original photographic work exploring the idea of a family
photograph. From the daguerreotype of the 1850’s to Kodak’s snapshot craze a hundred years
later to the countless photos currently stored in your iCloud, the history of family photographs is
almost as long and varied as the history of photography itself. Unlike any other medium before
it, photography allows us to capture the exact likeness of our loved ones. And the act of taking
photographs is both an affirmation and denial of death’s inevitability. The tradition of artists who
use photography to explore their family histories, relationships, and identities is as complex and
varied as how one defines a family.

For this exhibition, juror Sara Macel (www.saramacel.com)
is interested in seeing photo-based work by artists that explores the ideas of family, memory,
intimacy, or domesticity through the use of contemporary and/or archival photography. Entry

Best of Show receives $500 award.
