One Hour Photo

  • Deadline:
    March 31, 2010, midnight
  • Location:
    Washington, D.C.

One Hour Photo distills the photograph to the ultimate limited edition: 60 minutes. During the exhibition, photographic works will be projected for one hour each, after which they will never be seen again, by anyone, in any form.

One Hour Photo complicates the myth of photography as preservation, manifests the tension between the permanence of the medium and the impermanence of time, and subverts the profit model of the edition and the print.

We seek previously unpublished / undisplayed photographs or photographic-based work. Work selected will be projected for exactly one hour during the exhibition, with the understanding that it will not be shown, reproduced or sold from that moment forward. Participation in the exhibition will be documented on our website.

Submission deadline is March 31.
There is no submission fee.

One Hour Photo will show at the American University Museum at the Katzen Arts Center from May 8 - June 6 as part of the Spirat exhibition.
