Call for Work: Deadline: 28 September 2015

Exhibit:  November 5-28 2015
Entry Deadline: Monday September 28, 2015
International Competition for Photographs and Photo-Based Artwork at Umbrella Arts, New York City. Conceived and juried by Harvey Stein, Director of Photography, Umbrella Arts; photographer, educator, author, curator
We are seeking photographs of animals that are a bit unusual and out of the ordinary, not the conventionally cute images that are often seen.  The photographs certainly can be amusing, interesting, frank and biting.  
We define animal as anything that breathes and is not human.  

The tone can convey an appreciation of the joys and difficulties experienced by animals in the essentially absurd predicament of domestication.   Animals pictured in environments from homes to zoos, from city streets to rural farms, from natural habitats to the ends of the earth, with and without man are all sought.
The exhibition is open to all photographers working in color, black & white, film, digital, and beyond, etc.   Any format, any camera, any style is acceptable.
“Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read.”-Groucho  Marx
