‘Ansel Adams’ Job Opening in US Govt

In 1941, legendary photographer Ansel Adams began working for the US Department of the Interior to shoot large format photos of National Parks and other notable locations out in the great outdoors.
Guess what? The same job opening has appeared again: the National Parks Service is looking to hire a black-and-white large format photographer, and the salary is up to $100,000 per year.
A new job listing at USAJOBS shows that the National Park Service of the Department Of The Interior is looking for someone to fill an opening with the title “Photographer, GS-1060-11/12.”
The full time job has a salary range of $63,722 to $99,296 per year, and is based out of Washington, DC. It requires a great deal of traveling (up to 5 to 10 nights per month, the listing says), and is only available to US citizens.
In terms of job duties, the photographer will be tasked with shooting large-format documentary photos for the Library of Congress, developing photographic guidelines and standards, producing exhibition quality prints, evaluating photographic submissions, and making presentations about the photo collection.

"Myself A Memory," Exhibition of work by Tobia Makover (M.F.A. photography, 2001)

Tobia Makover (M.F.A. photography, 2001) is exhibiting over 600 of her images in a pop-up installation curated by artist and professor, Marcus Kenney (M.F.A. photography, 1998). "Makover is a fine art photographer and mixed media artist whose work creates intrigue through timeless and emotive imagery. Each piece starts with a photograph, the soul of her work. Makover then encompasses many layers of medium that she paints, carves, torches and then preserves in wax and resin through an encaustic process that dates back to the 1st Century, BCE." Visit her website at

The Photographic Nude 2016

LightBox is welcoming submissions to The Photographic Nude 2016 Exhibit
Call for Submissions
Submission Deadline – January 10, 2016
Dedicated in Memory of Ruth Bernhard and to her Creative Spirit
Opening Reception, Saturday, February 13th, 2015 6-9pm
This juried exhibit explores the artistic and creative view of the body and its form, celebrating the nude in photography by embracing a variety of styles. We welcome the timeless elegance of a classical study and alternative and provocative styles. Studies of the whole or partial human form, nude or semi-nude are eligible.
This year we are happy to announce that we, Michael and Chelsea Granger of LightBox, will jury The Photographic Nude. Having had great jurors over the first 5 years of this series, the selection process has returned to those that conceived of the exhibit. We are honored to be able to put our signature on the exhibit, look forward to the artist’s contributions, and are excited to see where the exhibit goes. Once again this year, the exhibit will also be published online in Blur Magazine.
“From Edward Weston to Joel-Peter Witkin, the nude as a subject has been approached by photographers throughout history. From the classic simplicity of Weston to the complex, evocative, and morose style of Witkin, capturing the human form remains a timeless yet challenging pursuit among photographers. At its best, it is beautiful, and when not, it’s just a naked body looking out of place.”
~Michael and Chelsea Granger
The Photographic Nude 2016 Exhibit will be published in Blur magazine in the Spring of 2016.

DEADLINE November 4th, 2015 23:59 EST Juror: Gary Braasch 
Water can be as beautiful and gentle as a morning dewdrop on a green leaf and as destructive as the raging of a river in flood.  We are made of oceans and rivers; an adult human body is 60% water, and a person can go little more than four days without drinking water.
Today water presents us with a paradox. The ocean levels are rising, and some areas are experiencing inundation, while other parts of the world are suffering unparalleled drought. Clean drinking water has become a precious commodity.
With this dichotomy in mind, how does the photographer depict the full range of our relationship with water? The beauty of oceans and rivers has been a source of inspiration for artists for ages, and photographers are no exception.  Who hasn't been seduced by the glint of the sun off a rippling body of water?  And yet, to be responsible custodians of our only world we have to look at the effects of the human mismanagement of water.
We're casting a wide net for this exhibition, inviting photographs that illustrate the beauty of water in all its mutable forms, and also images depicting our increasingly difficult relationship with water.  Water as muse, water as destroyer; the creative possibilities are limitless.

DEADLINE December 2nd, 2015 23:59 EST
Juror: Aline Smithson
Self as subject, one's uniqueness in scope, portraiture by design.
"Seity" is an uncommon word which, as defined by Webster, is "A quality peculiar to oneself; selfhood; individuality".  It could be seen as the essential quality of the true self-portrait: an expression of what makes the subject unique and defines her/his character in some way. This does not imply an exact replication of the photographer's appearance. Rather, it goes below the surface to reveal something of the essence of the photographer's psyche. An example would be the self portraits of Chuck Close, which provide an uncanny and discomfiting glimpse into his psyche. Self portraits do not have to represent objective outer reality; consider the photos of Cindy Sherman, none of which "look like her" but all have a relationship to some facet of her selfless, her seity.
In this age of the ubiquitous throwaway selfie it's an even greater and more worthwhile challenge to create a self portrait that expresses one's uniqueness and individuality. And that's the challenge we're putting forth for this exhibition: to present an image that defines an aspect of your true essence.

Alternative Cameras: Pinholes to Plastic

Call for Entries  
Juror: Susan Burnstine

Submissions close on
Monday, November 9, 2015
Gallery exhibition: Dec. 23, 2015 to Jan. 15, 2016
Alternative Cameras is about images made with any plastic, toy, pinhole or homemade camera, plastic lens on a traditional modern camera, Lensbaby, camera obscura - just about any non-traditional camera or lens, film or digital. For this exhibition, images from unadulterated iPhones are excluded.
Susan Burnstine, whose work is created entirely in-camera with homemade cameras, has agreed to jury Alternative Cameras, and we could not be more pleased. Susan will select 35 photographs for exhibition in our Middlebury, Vermont gallery, and an addition 40 for exhibition in our Online Gallery. All 75 will be reproduced in the exhibition catalog.
About the Juror
Susan Burnstine is an award-winning fine art and commercial photographer originally from Chicago, now based in Los Angeles. Susan is represented in galleries across the world, widely published throughout the globe, teaches workshops internationally and has also written for several photography magazines, including a monthly column for Black and White Photography Magazine (UK).
Burnstine is one of the few photographers today avidly pursuing alternative processes to create an idiosyncratic and deeply personal visual landscape. Initially, she sought to find a way to portray her dream-like visions entirely in-camera, rather than with post-processing digital manipulations. To achieve this, she has created twenty-three handmade film cameras and lenses that are frequently unpredictable and technically challenging. The cameras are primarily made out of plastic, vintage camera parts, and random household objects, with single-element lenses molded from plastic and rubber. Learning to overcome their extensive optical limitations required Burnstine to rely  on instinct and intuition -- the same tools that are key when attempting to interpret dreams.

Movie Frame by Frame

Frame by Frame
Performance Date: 10/30/2015, 8:45 am
Lucas Theater Tickets

Frame by Frame follows Afghan photojournalists navigating a young and dangerous media landscape to tell true stories of their home country. Pitted against powerful warlords, uncertainty as foreign troops and media withdraws, and the looming threat of civil war, four local photographers must overcome these obstacles -- and their own flaws -- to use photography as voice, identity and hope.

Set in a modern Afghanistan bursting with color and character, Frame by Frame disrupts a common fear-driven, downtrodden narrative of Afghanistan. Through cinema verité, intimate interviews, and powerful photojournalism, Frame by Frame connects an audience with four human beings in the pursuit of truth. As we explore a beautiful yet uncertain landscape through the photojournalists’ eyes, we face the question: can we reclaim our identity after it's been stripped away?

Opening Reception for Missing Voices: Field Notes and Photographs from Sapelo Island

M.F.A. photography student Dylan Wilson presents his thesis show, Missing Voices: Field Notes and Photographs from Sapelo Island, Oct. 23-26, 2015 at Oglethorpe Gallery, 406 E. Oglethorpe Ave., Savannah, Georgia. The opening reception is Friday, Oct. 23 from 6-9 p.m.  Wilson writes, "Missing Voices: Field Notes and Photographs from Sapelo Island is comprised of mixed media pieces, video, and audio. The intent is to present information about the marginalized descendants of slaves who have lived on Sapelo Island since the early 19th century, to reflect on historical blank spots, and to question the limits of documentary photography. This multimedia installation expands the definition of the document and presents underrepresented narratives of coastal Georgia's history."
