Selfies: Call for submissions of self-portraits to contribute to an exhibition at Artefacto - Tattoo, Art & Design dedicated to the photographer David Bailey. This piece will be a homage to Bailey’s Democracy a series where Bailey photographed many visitors to his studio, using the same set-up of camera, lighting etc. The only variable factored in was up to the models, who were all captured nude, being at complete liberty to choose their poses.
In this homage to Bailey, I’d like willing contributors to photograph themselves as near to a full-body shot as possible, ideally using natural daylight against a blank wall/surface. The photographs can be black and white or colour, though ultimately I will edit them into a black and white format, and can be taken with whatever camera at hand. My image above was taken with the camera on my phone set on a timer. It doesn’t matter if the device is in shot if the photo needs to be taken with a mirror.
I’m looking for as broad a range as possible of submissions from all genders. If you decide to contribute, ideally provide the date, time and town/city where the photograph was taken.
The deadline for receiving submissions is 10 th October. Please either contact me through my tumblr page or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your submissions or any queries regarding the project.
please reblog to spread the word!
