1650 Gallery is hosting the juried photography exhibition
THE DARK SIDE

The jazzy neon glow of a motel sign... the silver hush of a moonlit landscape... the hollow loneliness of deserted city street lamps... the raucous revelry of a nightclub at midnight.... NIGHT holds a special place in the heart of photography. The geometry of light and shadow creates an interplay of mystery, possibility, and the foreboding that accompanies paths of the unknown.

This October, as Halloween looms large on the horizon, 1650 invites you to visit THE DARK SIDE: A Juried Exhibit of Night Photography. Photographic greats such as Brassai, George Tice, Peter Hujar, Weegee and Robert Brook are just a few examples of those who have contributed great works in the genre of night photography. This month, at 1650, it is your turn.

Approximately fifty works will be chosen from submitted photographs to be included in the THE DARK SIDE exhibition at 1650 Gallery in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. Additional works may also be selected for an online gallery exhibition page.

There is an entry fee of $30 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.
