“We couldn’t be more excited to announce that Alec Soth, renowned photographer and founder of Little Brown Mushroom Books, will be serving as the guest curator for our 5th—and final—month of Hey, Hot Shot! 2010.

Alec Soth has emerged as one of the preeminent photographers of our time, working seamlessly across genres as fine artist, storyteller and documentarian. Soth’s creative projects combine photography, video, sound and writing (and more!) into inspiring stories that emerge from his journeys on the meandering roads of America. In 2008, Soth was named a full-time member of Magnum Photos and this September, the first U.S. survey of Soth’s work, From Here to There, will open at the Walker Art Center, not to be missed if you are anywhere near Minneapolis.

Deadline August 16th: Art & Science Collaborations Inc. Digital Print Competition-Exhibition

From the Art &Science Collaborations, Inc. (ASCI) website:

“DIGITAL’2010: PLANET EARTH

12th international digital print competition-exhibition organized by Art & Science Collaborations, Inc. (ASCI)

to be held at the New York Hall of Science

Exhibition dates: October 3, 2010 – January 31, 2011

ENTRY DEADLINE: August 16, 2010

Details: http://www.asci.org/artikel1102.html

INTRODUCTION

Our blue planet, spinning like a jewel in our solar system, has been perceptually defined by the technology of each era, from believing the Earth was flat, to the scientific understanding that it spins on its axis and has gravitational pull, to being part of just one of many solar systems. In terms of scale, humans are too small to viscerally comprehend our planet’s magnitude and the dynamics of its interconnected physical systems. We therefore break the concepts down into smaller parts, collect data and physical specimens of all kinds, and invent instruments to measure and track physical phenomena like earthquakes, tornados, and hurricanes. However, we still cannot grasp the “big picture” of planet Earth unless we read, look at photos, and finally… use our imagination to construct it!

For Digital’2010, we invite artists and scientists to submit digital prints that reflect their perceptions of our planet. Are these perceptions changing as we learn more about Earth from explorers, scientists, and artists? What is the relationship between all living things and planet Earth? What images are evoked by calling it the blue planet or the peaceful planet or the changing planet? What is the human impact on the whole planet? What is our concern for its future?

Art co-juror, Maddy Rosenberg, is a printmaker, independent curator, and owner/director of Central Booking in DUMBO, Brooklyn, NY. Opened in 2009, one of her two gallery spaces and its programming is devoted to shows of science-inspired artwork. Science co-juror, Patrick Hamilton, is the Science Museum of Minnesota’s Director, Environmental Sciences and Earth-System Science. He is currently heading-up the Future Earth Initiative, an NSF-supported set of exhibits and programs that explores the implications of human impact on the Earth. Art & Science Collaborations, Inc.

Deadline August 31st: Photo Coleslaw Infinite Summer Invitational

This on-line discussion has no submission fee and is judged by photographers, for photographers:

From the Photo Coleslaw blog:

“Who doesn’t love summer?

Somewhere within the long, hot days and the dripping popsicles lays a sense of unencumbered freedom. A justification to go barefoot and to lay on your back…. In conjunction with this carefree mood, Photo Coleslaw is presenting it’s First Photo Invitational.  During the month of August Photographer, Jennifer Spelman is inviting you to submit 3 photos that key in on the feeling of summer.  Jennifer Spelman is looking for photos that go beyond the cliches and really examine what summer is.  Dig deep, take the theme and make it personal.

Three panelists will discuss why they each chose a photo.  Jennifer Spelman will chime in as well.  A discussion on why these photo rose to the top will ensue.  In reward of the efforts of the three chosen photographers,  Spelman will send them each a matted 8 x 10 print of their choosing from her website.

So you have the entire month of August to shoot.  Put down your slurpee and pick up your camera.  Spelman would love to see what you create.  Send all submissions to Jennifer@JenniferSpelman.com.  Title the subject line in the email:  Infinite Summer Submission and include up to three jpgs (72 dpi).  All submissions are due by midnight on August 31, 2010.  All submissions must be sent with the inherent permission that they may be posted (and will be credited) on www.photocoleslaw.com.  All decisions by the panelists are final.

The three panelists you need to impress were all chosen for the various perspectives they will bring to their decisions:

DAN MILNOR – Photographer Daniel Milnor splits his time between the smog-choked chaos of Southern California and the spiritual landscape of New Mexico. He is happiest with his notebook, Leica and trusty leather boots, sizing up whatever situation is happening in front of him.  Milnor is former newspaper, magazine and commercial photographer who now tries to work solely on his own projects, projects that allow him to work in the fashion he feels most likely to produce images that go beyond the temporary.  He has taught at several prestigious learning centers such as Art Center College of Design, The Santa Fe Photographic Workshops and The Julia Dean Workshops but feels his  most important educational opportunity comes when he is able to spend time with his young nephews, teaching them a range of things that have all, at one time or another, gotten them in trouble at school.  His judging experience is diverse, covering such things as his wife’s cooking, his fathers fashion disasters and all the random people he sees in airports around world, whom he never gives the benefit of the doubt.  But most importantly, Milnor is the author of the blog Smogranch, which allows him to speak his mind, post his mother’s poetry and bring together like-minded people around the globe.

JENNIFER DAVIDSON – As a marine biologist-turned-photographer from a ranching family in rural west Texas, Jennifer’s views of photography are as varied as her personal history.  Much of her time these days is spent on the road teaching photography workshops for Santa Fe Photo Workshops, National Geographic Expeditions and Linblad Expeditions.  She has critiqued over 10,000 photos in her time as an instructor.  When not photographing or encouraging others in their visual journey, Davidson spends her time hiking in the mountains, on the yoga mat or in the kitchen concocting new and unique ice cream flavors to feed her summer addiction.

VICKY  SPELMAN – LANG – Yep, Spelman’s mama.  Her mom has recently retired from almost 20 years in law enforcement.  She also makes a mean lemon-meringue pie.  She’s tough to impress and has a good handle on what summer means. When not helping her son or daughter out in their endeavors, Spelman-Lang is most often found with an imposing pickax in hand, waging war on weeds silly enough to attempt residency  within her pristine yard.”
