Curator’s statement by Gwen Lafage regarding the theme (Un)Familiar:
This competition invited photographers to submit a series of photographs interpreting the theme (Un)Familiar, along with a brief statement or project proposal supporting their entry. We were looking for a wide interpretation of the theme and therefore a wide range of imagery; the photographs could 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.
The (Un)Familiar Exhibition Catalog (8.25″ x 10.75″ / 68 pages / Perfect-bound) is available for purchase & as a free download on MagCloud.
