As a photographer, how do you explore and interpret the familiar and the unfamiliar? How do your vision and/or perspective(s) change when faced with places and people you know, versus when you are confronted by the unknown, or by strangers you meet by chance? Traveling, discovering new places and meeting new people creatively stimulates many photographers, while others find inspiration in the comfort of their home, hometown or among their friends and families.
This competition invites photographers to submit a series of photographs interpreting the theme (Un)Familiar, along with a brief statement or project proposal supporting their entry. We are looking for a wide interpretation of the theme and therefore a wide range of imagery; your photographs can be visualizations of the Familiar, the Unfamiliar, or both. Your statement needs to quickly present your project and explain why you believe it fits with the chosen theme. Ideally, your proposal should help us understand how, or if you adapt your photographic process based on your relationship to and/or intimacy with the subject or environment being depicted.
