CALL FOR PHOTOGRAPHY - November 15, 2009
This call for entries privileges two points of view: looking down from a high vantage point, and looking out to a vanishing horizon. The title Down & Out might conjure images of ne'er-do-wells (risky, if the public decides not to inquire further). What I hope the photographs provide, however, is pleasure in the variety of ways 'down' and 'out' can be imaged, and what emotional liberation such points-of-view can have on our often confined and overly responsible psyches. Entry fee.
