Humanity has always been on the move. Some people are escaping conflicts, war zones, regime, utter devastation. Others are forced to move because of drought or floods caused by climate change, natural disasters, or other environmental factors. There are people who are escaping poverty who then turn into economic migrants, looking to support their families, provide ‘a better life’ for themselves.

NYC4PA Call for Entry - HUMANS

Art history is filled with images of HUMANS that have changed our lives and changed our minds. Painting, sculpture, works on paper and now photography have engaged us in our own reflection. Photography, the most accessible medium, shows us our humanity through traditional portraiture, street photography, families, events and maybe even selfies. This is not about equipment, it is about ideas and vision. We consider our various manifestations as we see through the lens of others. Annie Leibovitz, Richard Avedon, Henri Cartier Bresson, Vivian Meier - all have a unique vision of who we are. HUMANS is a call for entry for YOUR vision of who we are. Images must have people in them photographed alone, as couples or in groups.
