we like small things v.4

Juried by Oriana Koren


Filter Photo is pleased to announce we like small things v.4, an open call for photographic work that is 10 x 10 inches or less, juried by Oriana Koren. There will be an opening reception, in conjunction with Collaborating with the Archive, on September 24th during the 2021 Filter Photo Festival.


Works in progress, one offs, inkjet prints, silver gelatin, alternative processes, camera-less, and more—all types of 2D photo-based work are welcome for this pin-up exhibition that will showcase smaller work. This is a call for unframed work only. Prints will be pinned to the wall to create a studio like environment.
