they know they're expendable
after all, they're men."

1650 Gallery is hosting the juried photography exhibition
The Man Show

Men - they are everywhere. Women are photographed constantly, but what about the lowly male of the species? Sure, they're not pretty, they don't smell that good, they aren't curvey and when they laugh they don't make that lovely lilting sound those lucky women do. Men are different! Sweating and swearing and grunting their way through life, clawing their way from crisis to crisis, hunting and gathering to collect the tools and toys they need to survive; men are purpose-built. They lift weights, sing songs, write words, fight fights and make machines, all in common purpose to keep home and hearth secure. A fraternity united by the dark horizon. Because nerd or blowhard, hipster or gangster, dude, bro or gentleman, all men eventually face the same truth: live today while you can, because tomorrow the short straw belongs to you. We all know the unspoken rule: "women and children first!" And so men yearn to adventure, some in flak jackets and some in bowties, in a bid to delay the inevitable. But ultimately the sea can't be held back, every problem will not gain a solution and the walls of time can not hold. And so into the void men go.

This month at 1650 it's all about the man of the house. Dudes, bros and gentlemen; they are here for the temporary duration, so why not feed their massive fragile egos and take some photos of them? Ladies and gents, point your cameras at the UN-fairer sex this month and send them in, because this time 1650 pays tribute to DUDES, BROS AND GENTLEMEN!

Approximately fifty works will be chosen from submitted photos to be included in the DUDES, BROS & GENTLEMEN group photography exhibition at 1650 Gallery in Los Angeles.

There is an entry fee of $35 for up to 5 images. Additional entries may be submitted for $5 each.

We offer free matting and framing for accepted photographs that fit our pre-cut mat sizes for the duration of the exhibition. We have a variety of frames and mats to choose from.

We will also print your photo for a nominal fee if you are accepted into the show and would prefer not to mail a print.

AWARDS: Best In Show, 2nd Place and 3rd Place will be awarded and posted online after the show opening. Award winning photos will be featured on the show page and Best In Show winners will have a small portfolio of their work (up to 10 images) featured in our 1650 Spotlight gallery of photographic excellence.

All Awards winners will also be featured in our 1650 Gallery newsletter, which is broadcast via email to our mailing list. Getting the word out about artists we're excited about helps you do more great work, helps us show more great work, and helps keep the often insular world of fine art photography more diverse and vibrant.
