The goal of the documentary photographer can ultimately serve just one purpose; to tell the big picture, and in so doing, combat the big lie.
Like the writer, the photographer must “shoot what she knows”. Thee best photographers must strive to see the profound in the most commonplace everyday occurrences. And the vision of that artist’s eye, the ability to see the great unseen and picture the profound from the pedestrian, is the magic that continues to propel photography as a great art form yesterday, today and in the future.
This month 1650 welcomes your take on documentary and street photography. Approximately fifty works will be chosen from submitted photographs to be included in the GET REAL exhibition at 1650 Gallery in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. Additional works may also be selected for an online gallery exhibition page.
