Focal Press, an imprint of Routledge, has spearheaded the book series Contemporary Practices in Alternative Process Photography.
I am very excited to be writing a book on Chrysotype as part of this series. It will include an historical overview, how-to section and highlight the wonderful work of people creating images using this photographic printing process. I'm calling for submissions of work until 24 September and invite you to submit images for consideration as part of the book. Please complete and upload the following content to Dropbox or WeTransfer and send the URL to firstname.lastname@example.org
Download and complete a permission form and a questionnaire. Completing the questionnaire also includes providing a short bio, artist statement about the work submitted and information about your creative practice.
3-10 images, sRGB colorspace, sized no larger than 300ppi, 10˝ longest side, TIFF, no compression, at least one vertical and one horizontal image. Please also include up to five scans of failed prints for a chrysotype troubleshooting pictorial guide. You must have permission forms for any person(s) or property in the photograph if applicable.
Please place all image details for captioning in a Word docx. Details are to include:
- Year, title, and size of work, e.g. 8˝ x 10˝
- Previous publication details for the work
- Exact process used (e.g. chrysotype or chrysotype hand-coloured)
- How you want your name to appear next to the work, e.g. Drape © Leanne McPhee, 2018
Please note: your submission will be part of a selection process. Confirmation of selection will be three weeks after the deadline. If selected, benefits will be a résumé publication line and inclusion in a contemporary historical snapshot of Chrysotype.
Looking forward to hearing from you. Leanne.
