Harvey Stein, a photographer featured in the upcoming issue of HFR, has a new photo project that he is opening to the public. Here's the call:
From casual meals to gourmet banquets, DINNER is part of our daily lives. Whether we celebrate it or just tolerate it, we can't do without it. We plan greatly for it, or grin and bear it. It's a ritual, whether eating on the run or at the dinner table, alone or with friends and family. We romance and socialize around it, worry about it, prepare for it, dread it, or try to ignore it. We study recipes, look through fancy restaurant windows in envy, are hungry for the next DINNER, wonder if we can afford it.If you're interested in submitting photos of you getting down on your Mom's famous sloppy joe's, e-mail email@example.com to get an entry form. Winners will have their work displayed at Umbrella Arts studio in the East Village. Submissions are due by April 11, 2011 so get cookin'.
We want to see your photos of your DINNER (and/or others) and what you do when you are there. Whether your photographs are of a person eating a piece of pizza on the subway, a Thanksgiving or Passover feast, or a lonely individual at a diner, we are interested. From shopping for it, preparing it, indulging in it, or cleaning up afterwards, make your photos as personal, interesting, sensual, fun, beautiful, startling as you can. No DINNER is out of bounds.
