N.Y. Photo Curator Call for Entry

Theme:  'Origin Stories: Personal Cosmologies'


Curated by Granville Carroll
Deadline: May 31, 2022
 
Granville Carroll says, "Photography has a wonderful ability to showcase stories and narratives that transcend the linear construct of time. The malleability of the medium helps us to visually construct our personal and collective origin stories. It can shift the ways we view the world and our place within it. I often ask myself who am I? Where did I come from? Where am I going? These self-reflective questions can reveal how personal and collective histories impact our creative vision to represent the world through photography. To understand the ”why” regarding our use of photography, it is important to go back to the source, to where identity began to be shaped. Peering into the past allows us to confront the many ways we have constructed our identities and how our identities have been constructed for us through social values, family legacy, and cultural traditions. Reflecting on the past allows us to understand where we are currently and the possibilities for where we will go next.
 
I am interested in seeing images that reflect these ideas, that show us how you examine your origins of being and its manifestation in your art practice. How does your upbringing, ideologies, belief systems, and traditions influence your representations through photography? Share with us how you explore your origin stories, whether it is based in history and fact or based in fiction and the imagination. Some origins have been lost, some transformed, and some have maintained their essence throughout time. Submit images that showcase how you meditate on the origins of your life and how it has shaped your identity. All conceptual approaches are welcome. All photographic processes, from analog to digital, are welcome."

 
Granville Carroll is a visual artist, educator (faculty associate-Arizona State University), and Afrofuturist working with digital technology, poetry, and alternative processes to reshape the world. Carroll experiments with photographic representation to examine the many ways identity is shaped and constructed. Simultaneously, he explores and expands ideas around racial blackness to encompass spatial blackness, temporal blackness, and spiritual blackness. Carroll highlights the imaginative qualities of the human mind through world building and storytelling to create new futures and states of being. At the core of his practice is the investigation into metaphysics and the ontology of self and the universe.

Carroll earned a BFA in photography from Arizona State University in 2018, and a MFA in photography and related media from the Rochester Institute of Technology in 2020. His work has been shown in the United States and internationally. Most recently his work has appeared at CAV Gallery in NM, Danforth Art Museum in MA, and the Pool Art Center in MO. Carroll currently resides in Rochester, NY where he completed an artist residency at the Visual Studies Workshop in Fall 2021. Carroll has been named a 2021 Silver List artist and a 2020 Critical Mass Finalist. His work has been published in a variety of physical and online publications, interviews, and features. Most recently his work was published through Fraction Magazine, What Will You Remember, Brink Literary Journal, Lenscratch, Humble Arts Foundation, and Black Is Magazine. Talks include George Eastman Museum Artist Talk: Beyond the Veil, Rochester Institute of Technology: Visual Communication & Arizona State University: Faculty Lecture Series.
