INFORMATION AND ELIGIBILITY
Open to all photographers internationally.
Abstract is where we are all in a sense, living in a shifted context of culture, we find ourselves out of our elements and having to try new things. We are looking at things in a whole different way now and having shifted perspectives looking at things in an abstract manner. We are seeing things close to us becasue we are not venturing out as far. When our lives are closer to home, we look at things closely, creative ways of looking at what is in front of us and finding interest in the details. It is refreshing to look through our cameras with a purely visual design elements and not having to think too critically about what it all means, a way to check out and let a stream of consciousness dictate visual aesthetics. Lets look a how we are currently seeing things through the photographs represented in this exhibition.
