Now You Don’t: Photography and Extinction
Deadline: Sunday, July 15, 2018
The degree of ecological unraveling now underway has no precedent in human experience. Due chiefly to habitat loss, invasive species, human overpopulation, pollution, and overharvesting, experts fear that nearly half of all species currently living on earth may be extinct in thirty to forty years.
What does it mean to watch species disappear? What does this disappearance look like? How can ecosystems and their destabilization be visualized? How are the causes, effects, and issues related to extinction being documented and/or interpreted within photographic media?
In the In-Between is seeking photographic work of all types that register this extinction crisis.
Submissions may address, but are not limited to, the following topics:
- Endangered/threatened/vulnerable species and ecosystems
- Causes and effects of mass extinction
- Conservation efforts
- Interspecies ethics and care
- Animal remains and fossils
- The loss of non-plants and non-animals (such as invertebrates or fungi)
- Degradation of culturally meaningful ecosystems
- Direct and indirect effects of human activity on natural ecosystems
- Tensions between documentary and artistic photographic modes
- Issues of human violence against animals
- Ethical implications of environmental aesthetics
- Strategies for mobilizing compassion for sentient beings
- Human extinction
Guidelines & Requirements:
- This exhibition is open to all photographic processes.
- Up to three jpegs sized to 72dpi and 1000px on the longest side.
- File labeling: Lastname_Firstname_number (ex: doe_jane_01, doe_jane_02, doe_jane_3)
- Statement (1-2 paragraphs)
- Artist Bio (1-2 paragraphs)
- A $5 submission fee is requested to offset administrative costs.
Selected entries will be included in the online exhibition Now You Don’t: Photography and Extinction, to open on In the In-Between in Late Summer/Fall 2018.
Submission deadline: Sunday, July 15, 2018.
Acceptance notifications: Sunday, July 22, 2018
Hi-res images due: Thursday, July 29, 2018
Publication/opening: Late Summer 2018

First Saturday Arts Market in the Houston Heights got its start in March 2004 and has continued quietly each month since. Hosting a curated selection of fine art and artisan craft from all over greater Houston, the dozens of artists that attend each month make up a wide cross-section of Houston’s diverse arts culture.
The market is Houston’s longest continuously running outdoor fine art event. Boasting close to 50 artists each month, the market is best described as a small-scale version of a large juried art festival. With popular food trucks, local singer/songwriters, beer and wine, the market is a popular stop on the busiest day of the month for Houston’s oldest community.
First Saturday Arts Market is located in the Historic Houston Heights by YogaOne Studios, 530 W. 19th St. at Lawrence St., the market showcases paintings, sculpture, photography, jewelry and handcrafted items. The entire family is welcome to enjoy the art, live music and delicious fare from some of the area’s best gourmet food trucks.
Open year-round on the first Saturday of each month, the market is open from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. September through May and from 6-10 p.m. from June through August.
The artists, musicians and other vendors are all listed on the website the week of the event, including food trucks. Free admission and nearby parking make this an easily accessible arts event. Shops and restaurants along W. 19th Street are within easy walking distance make a visit into an all-day excursion a breeze. 1stSatArtMarket.com
