Modern Dialect Photo Hunt Challenge 5: Still Life

Hartley The Seashell

This next mobile photography challenge delves into yet another style featured in our Modern Dialect exhibition. Get inspired by this Modernist American art exhibition, then respond with your take on the fifth challenge in the series:

  • Capture something that reflects Still Life using Marsden Hartley’s Seashell painting as inspiration.
  • Tag your work on Instagram with #CMAPhotoHunt, and #Stillography
  • For this assignment you have until Friday August 8, 2014.
  • Please note: images must be your own. Anyone in the world can participate.
  • Also be sure to fill out the form below, so we can contact you if your work is selected, and keep you up to date on new challenges.

We’ll select our favorites (based on the most creative entries, and ones that best represent the assignment), and your creation could grace the walls at Columbus Museum of Art in our 5th CMA Photo Hunt exhibition this fall.

Please help spread the word about the Photo Hunts, and follow mobile photographers you admire. This is very much about connecting, building, and supporting the talented mobile photography community around the world.

CMA Photo Hunts are a digital complement to CMA collections and exhibitions, give participants an opportunity to flex their creativity, be inspired by works or themes in Columbus Museum of Art exhibitions or collections, and respond to creative challenges leveraging the power of social media and the smart phone. Since our Photo Hunts began we have received more than 6,000 submissions from hundreds of photographers around the world. With our first exhibition in 2012, we were first museum in the world to present a curated, crowdsourced installation based on the popular photo sharing app Instagram. Read more about the inception of the Photo Hunt project in stories in The Columbus Dispatch, Art Daily, and Clic France, and Columbus Alive, and see all the photos submitted so far in the CMA Photo Hunt Gallery.

Watch for additional biweekly Photo Hunt assignments here on our blog through August, and on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Please fill out the below form to make sure we can contact you if your photos are selected, and keep you up to date on new events and challenges.
