Call for Entry: Self Portrait

Some photographers can’t resist the temptation to turn the camera on themselves. I’ve photographed myself many times over the years. I like a plain, straight photograph generally, and this holds true for pictures I take of me just as well as for pictures I take of others.

Here is my current response to the call for Self Portraits from PhotoPlace Gallery in Vermont.

We photographers long for an audience for our photographs, and across the imaging landscape there are hundreds of Calls For Entry, I look for calls from the PhotoPlace Gallery. They understand photography and a photographer’s desire to publish, and they are particularly good at choosing curators who know a good picture when they see one. I’ve had success showing there; they make it fun.
