INFORMATION AND ELIGIBILITY
Open to all photographers internationally.
Impacted by the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, people focused on staying safe by staying physically distant from other people, sending us into isolation. We have been forced to take a moment to stop, take a look around, and through this uncomfortable experience we have embarked upon a situation that has changed our world. At this time when we are staying at home, isolated, whether with our family or without our family we are seeing life in a new light and different perspective. Some of us have found this to be a time of renewed appreciation for the simple things in life; spending more time cherishing our loved ones, embracing the sights and sounds of nature, and finding that we can get by on what we have right here in our homes. We stay isolated while health care workers bravely risk their lives in the fight against this disease. Many have struggled severely with illness and fear and loss. The global pandemic has affected how we see our life inside our homes, and just outside of our windows. Through necessity and hesitation we venture out if able, although briefly, we see that our world has changed. There are empty spaces, near vacant parking lots, desolate streets, and closed businesses. We come upon an unfarmiliar sight, it is an eerie and unsettling scene, and the vast emptiness is not comforting. Yet as photographers we find this visual scene one that calls upon us to go to our cameras for instinctual image making of this historic situation, documenting this time as one that we have not seen before in our lifetimes. Self-expression and emotive healing through photography is vital. This online exhibition will provide a platform for us to show how this unprecedented time has affected us, and the photographs will hopefully provide comfort that we are not alone during this trying experience.
Photographers submitting will be featured in the online exhibition. A brief textual statement is optional.
A portion of the proceeds from the call for entry will be donated to the American Red Cross.
