Call For Photography: Memento Mori

Memento Mori is a profound and evocative theme in photography, focusing on the transient nature of life and the inevitability of death. This concept, rooted in the Latin phrase meaning "remember that you must die," encourages a deep reflection on mortality and the passage of time. Memento mori can be a powerful reminder of the fleeting nature of our existence, a source of comfort and inspiration, and that we should make the most of our remaining time on this mortal coil. Show us, what makes life worth living, and how does one cope with the certainty of death?

Call for Entries: LIGHT AND SHADOW

Light and the absence of light – shadow – are fundamental ingredients of photography. The relationship of the two allows artists of any kind to create the illusion of 3 dimensions on a 2-dimensional surface. When light and shadow work effectively together, magic can happen.

For this exhibit, we seek images that effectively use light and shadow to draw attention to the subject, emphasize dimension, strengthen composition, or simply create beauty by the interplay of the two.

The definition of architecture is the art or science of building, often with a focus on habitable structures.  We are familiar with architects like Gehry, Wright, and Gaudi as well as famous buildings like the Empire State Building in New York and the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. But are habitable structures a requirement? Actually, it can be much broader than that. For instance, the Eiffel Tower, the pyramids in Egypt, interiors of cathedrals or the main hall at New York's Grand Central Station are all examples of world-famous architecture. In addition, examples of architecture do not have to be world famous.  Private houses, bridges etc. are all examples and skylines may represent a collection of similar or different types of architecture.

Expressive Nature | Call For Photography

We invite photographers to submit to our open call, Expressive Nature. This call for photography seeks to delve into the emotional and artistic resonance of the natural world as seen through the artist's lens.

Photographers are encouraged to challenge the viewer's perception of nature with organic shapes, showcase the dynamic interplay between light and shadow, or capture moments of stillness that evoke deep emotion. Celebrate the beauty and expressive power of nature through your photography.

Explore and interpret the natural surroundings uniquely, showcasing your ability to capture its emotional essence. We welcome submissions in any style, including abstract, experimental, black and white, and documentary.
