WANDERLUST: Travels Near & Far

Travel... everyone does it. From the freight-hopping hobos of the depression, to the jet-setting socialites of the 60's and 70's, to the stripped down "less is more" austerity of the here and now, travel brings us new landscapes and fresh faces -- whether we want them or not. Road trip, first day at University, a walk around the block or a trip around around the world, travel brings new views and fresh perspectives. And isn't that photography in a nutshell?

So wherever you are in the world, we want to see what you see on your travels. Spectacular or mundane. A grand mountain vista or the line-up at the airport check-in. From desert sands to ocean shores, the alps to antartica, a greyhound bus or a truck stop diner. TRAINS PLANES BOATS OR BUSES, show us the people and places of YOUR expanded bubble. A simple premise, open to physical or metaphysical interpretation (some trips are all the head!), this month 1650 feeds your wanderlust as we search for photos of travel, near and far! Open to submissions worldwide.

55 works have been chosen from submitted photographs to be included in the WANDERLUST exhibition at 1650 Gallery in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles.

We offer free matting and framing for accepted photographs that fit our pre-cut mat sizes for the duration of the exhibition. 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.

Hope to see you at the opening reception!
