Call for Entry: June Issue of Fraction, The Unnatural Nature of Food

Group show for the June Issue of Fraction.

The Unnatural Nature of Food.


Food in our society has an interesting journey from, as the expression goes, "farm to table." Unknown farmers and hard working, often migrant laborers pick the food, package it and load it into trucks, ships and trains. It arrives at the supermarket where the average consumer is disconnected with (and often indifferent to) how their food got to his or her table. This call for entry is for work documenting all aspects of food, from production to consumption — from studies of agrarian communities, practices and lifestyles to exploration of how fast food has affected our culture and everything in between.

Specs: All images should be jpgs, 72 dpi, 1000 pixels on the longest side. Please email jpgs images titled lastname.firstname.image1 and so on to photographs@melaniemcwhorter.com. All images should be emailed with an additional document labeled lastname.firstname.text containing an artist statement about the project, if applicable, a title list and artist website address. Please list your name and email address at the top of the document.

There is no entry fee. The deadline is April 30th at midnight.

Sorry I don't have any work in this area, but is there a little bit of irony here given that a good deal of the accountability for the current pandemic concern is due to the corporate raising of pigs for food?

Aw, just found this call for entries + the issue. I am heartbroken that I didn't know about it sooner, it would've been perfect for me! I hope there is another in the future.
