The Center for Fine Art Photography announces a new Call for Entry for

Consumption, A Main Gallery Photo Show for July.
Deadline Extended: April 27, 2010: On line at www.c4fap.org by Midnight PST

Theme: Consumption is a multifaceted term that can signify the influence of advertising and marketing on our pervasive consumer culture. The word also speaks to our profound human instincts. To be consumed by something-be it illness, emotions, or beliefs-is to oftentimes confront one's realities. What, why, when, and how we consume determines the ramifications of the choices we make. Additionally, consumption can simply suggest a transformation. The Center is looking for images that visually depict Consumption and what it means to you and those around us.

Juror: Brian Paul Clamp is Director of ClampArt, a contemporary art gallery in Chelsea in New York City, established in 2000. Brian has nearly two decades of experience in the field.
