N.Y. Photo Curator ‘Origin Stories: Personal Cosmologies’
Granville Carroll says, “Photography has a wonderful ability to showcase stories and narratives that transcend the linear construct of time. The malleability of the medium helps us to visually construct our personal and collective origin stories. It can shift the ways we view the world and our place within it. I often ask myself who am I? Where did I come from? Where am I going? These self-reflective questions can reveal how personal and collective histories impact our creative vision to represent the world through photography. To understand the ”why” regarding our use of photography, it is important to go back to the source, to where identity began to be shaped. Peering into the past allows us to confront the many ways we have constructed our identities and how our identities have been constructed for us through social values, family legacy, and cultural traditions. Reflecting on the past allows us to understand where we are currently and the possibilities for where we will go next.
I am interested in seeing images that reflect these ideas, that show us how you examine your origins of being and its manifestation in your art practice. How does your upbringing, ideologies, belief systems, and traditions influence your representations through photography? Share with us how you explore your origin stories, whether it is based in history and fact or based in fiction and the imagination. Some origins have been lost, some transformed, and some have maintained their essence throughout time. Submit images that showcase how you meditate on the origins of your life and how it has shaped your identity. All conceptual approaches are welcome. All photographic processes, from analog to digital, are welcome.”
20% of artist entry fees goes to charity.
