Deadline: August 1, 2009 by 7pm EST
Photographic submissions are now being accepted for Lay Flat 02 on the theme of "Metaphotography." In epistemology, the prefix 'meta-' is used to mean beyond/about (its own category). For example, metadata is data about data. Accordingly, metaphotography is photography about photography. This issue aims to bring together the work of photographers whose images are conceptually in dialogue with the history or conventions of the medium itself. Lay Flat 02 will be assembled by Lay Flat's founder and editor, Shane Lavalette, along with this issue's guest editor, Michael Bühler-Rose.
To be considered for publication, please send an e-mail with the subject line "LF02 SUBMISSION" to photo [at] layflat.org along with the following:
1. Your name, age, location and website.Submissions that do not follow these guidelines will not be considered.
2. A short statement about your work and why it's relevant to the theme.
3. 5-10 photographs (72dpi, saved as a .jpg, 800px wide/tall).
Textual submissions are reviewed on a rolling basis by sending your writing (either a PDF or Word .doc) and a brief biography to words [at] layflat.org.
