Curators Laura Moya and Laura Valenti Jelen are putting together an exhibition for this spring that showcases images that photographers made when they were children. “Early Works” will show in April at Newspace Center for Photography in Oregon during Portland Photo Month, and at RayKo Photo Center in San Francisco in Fall 2013.
According to the a Web site setup for “Early Works,” “naive” images made by photographers “often reveal surprising talent, visual intuition, and honesty. Kept for many decades in shoeboxes and faded albums, the images are often cherished belongings that play a key role in defining the self as artist.”
There is no entry fee to submit work. The deadline is February 4th, 2013.
