Photo Exhibit: LGBT Life Across America
Sponsored by the editors of FourTwoNine magazine
FourTwoNine, a newly relaunched men’s magazine based in Los Angeles, is seeking entries for a project documenting the real lives of LGBTQ people across the United States. Photos selected will appear in a touring gallery show beginning during Pride in Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco and in an upcoming issue of our national magazine’s print and online editions.
We are inspired by the power of images to present LGBTQ life in all of its richness. Even within the community, we sometimes don’t understand the struggles and joys others are experiencing in different regions, different socio-economic situations, among different race, religion and age groups, and in all of the wildly different personal situations people find themselves in.
We’d like to present to the world a view of LGBTQ life that reflect this variety–we are looking for documentary photos–photo journalism and street photography–that will surprise viewers who may be used to seeing a narrower range of Pride-style depictions of gay people.
We seek work that has not been published in mainstream media, and only ask for exclusivity for the Summer of 2017. Selected work will be credited with bio and links. One image may be selected for use on the cover of FourTwoNine magazine.
How to Enter: Please send lo-res files to firstname.lastname@example.org along with notes on your photo’s context and a brief bio and contact info. Limit of five photos per entry.
Deadline: May 25, 2017
You will be notified in early June if you have been selected and will receive details on prep for the exhibit and on uploading hi-res files for publication.
Details on exhibition dates to be announced by June 10.
