INFORMATION AND ELIGIBILITY
Open to all photographers internationally. All photographic media is welcome.
In this changed world the concept of "Walkabout" has taken on new meanings in a quickly shifted context. The simple act of going out walking is a cherished activity while we are isolated. Taking photographs while visually exploring, whether seeking a particular image, or if it's the experience of adventure that is the destination, as photographers we do this. We experience a sense of awareness from exploring our personal surroundings at home, in a town or city on foot, or driving through the landscape. Walkabout is an exhibition showcasing the banality of the everyday. Photographs submitted for exhibition can range from a detailed exploration of a particular location to a visual documentation of one's personal interaction with their surroundings. The act of observing our surroundings through capturing the visual qualities of a location portrays a sense of documenting one's experience. We approach many different ways of describing and documenting location, whether it is exterior or interior space, whether it is captured in detail or from a distance. The works presented in this exhibition will encompass what it means to simply examine a sense of place with the medium of photography.
Selection for participation will be based upon the series of work submitted by each artist, individual image selection will be made upon the creative merit and quality of individual images. A brief artist statement is optional.
