Photography in the Age of Social Media

     In New York Magazine, while reviewing a 2014 retrospective of famed street photographer Garry Winograd's work, art critic Jerry Saltz wrote: "The whole world is now filled with incredible images—especially on Instagram and other social networks—that owe something to Winogrand’s, documenting life, change, and all the rest...what’s happening online on social media deserves far more serious scrutiny than it’s getting. If the art world doesn’t admit more of this sort of deceptively casual-seeming work, the outside world will reject more so-called art photography than it already does."
     In 2016, at what could be the apex of the age of smart phones, and photo sharing apps, how are photographers meeting Saltz's challenge? How are they using "Social Media" to define and re-define their own medium? How has this aesthetic and technological revolution of sharing photographs changed photography?
    The Fine and Performing Arts Department at Colby-Sawyer College is looking for artists creating photographic work that deal with this change, whether by questioning, rejecting, or embracing photography in and as a social media. 

January 5, 2017 Submission Requirements:
     Submissions should be emailed to [email protected], following the below guidelines.
     Photographers may submit up to five images from a cohesive, exhibition-ready body of work, as well as a brief artist statement and resume.  Work must be submitted digitally by January 5, 2017.
     Artists should submit no more than 5 jpegs of their images. The jpegs should be saved at 1200 pixels on their longest side, and the file size should not exceed 500kb. Files that exceed this size will not be reviewed.
     In addition, artists should submit a one page PDF that includes a short statement, bio, and contact information.
