photo-eye Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico, is looking for photographic submissions for a gallery exhibition in Santa Fe (and online) entitled: "F R A C T U R E D."

This year marks the 40th Anniversary of photo-eye and we are celebrating with our first-ever Open Call.

We invite the submission of photographic works exploring the concept of “fractured.” Artists are encouraged to be creative in their interpretation of the theme.

Today, our world can seem divided in a multitude of ways. Between debates over the climate emergency, corporations literally breaking our earth with fracking, families split at national borders, and our divided political systems, concepts like societal unity and harmony feel like a distant hope. Even on a personal level, humans have the capacity to feel fissured, split, and incomplete in our thoughts and emotions. Shifts in perspective, breaks from tradition, and experiencing loss can all encompass the idea of the fracture. This concept can have both positive and negative connotations. However, acknowledging that something is broken is the first step in working toward healing. How can art be a platform for expressing, and ultimately bridging these personal and social divides? What role does the photographer play in observing, documenting, and healing the fractured landscapes around and within us all?

This exhibition will be juried by the photo-eye Gallery staff. The gallery is looking for new work, and submissions to the open call are also considered for future representation in our online Photographer’s Showcase. Standard artist contract applies.

Submitted photographs may come from photojournalistic or documentary projects, commercial assignments, as well as photographs made as expressive artworks.


Work is juried by the following photo-eye Staff members
Rixon Reed, Director
Anne Kelly, Gallery Director
Lucas Shaffer, Artist Relationships
Alexandra Jo, Gallery Assistant
Vicki Bohannon, Gallery Preparator
