This Deadline Expired: Monday, January 10, 2022
Soho Photo Gallery is pleased to announce the 24th International Krappy Kamera Competition. Located in lower Manhattan, SPG is New York City’s longest running co-operative photography gallery. All selected photographs will be exhibited at the Gallery as well as on our website. The opening reception is Thursday, March 3rd from 6 to 8 pm.
What is a Krappy Kamera
Soho Photo Gallery’s philosophy is that in the hands of any artist great photographs can be made with basic equipment. To explore this talent, we are searching for extraordinary photographs made with lousy lenses. Examples of some Krappy Kameras are the Holga, Diana, Ansco, and pinhole cameras. You can also create your own Krappy Kamera by using your non-Krappy Kamera (e.g. 4×5, SLR, DSLR) and exchanging the lens with a Krappy lens (e.g.pinhole body cap or Holga-type lens). Cell phones, disposables and point and shoot cameras are ineligible. Remember, just because a camera is old and moldy doesn’t make it Krappy. The lens is the determining factor.
