INFORMATION AND ELIGIBILITY
Expressing from a place of the personal and connecting on a personal level is what compels us to make powerful images. Photographs which encompass this exhibition will explore the notion of personal narrative through a set or series of photographs that are sequential in nature, collectively telling a story. The photographic works that make up a narrative can be sequenced literally or metaphorically by subject matter, concept or aesthetics, creating a personal dialogue with the viewer. We are seeking intimate expressions of openly portrayed experiences, thoughts, and emotions concerning one's particular life. We each have a personal story and sharing that narrative through a photo essay is a means to express who we are as unique individuals.
Selection will be based upon the the series of images and/or text entered by each artist.
Selected artists will have their work featured in the exhibition and online.
