Deadline: 18 April 2023. In the wake of the pandemic era, faced with tumultuous global political upheavals and threats brought about by economic disparities and the climate crisis, can we offer new pathways into personal stories, moments and experiences in public spaces? Thresholds will outline a panoramic view of global street photography at a moment when the mere idea of public spaces has been radically shifted.
Covid forced us into isolation and separation from one another while paradoxically opening up our homes and providing us with direct access to countless cities through our devices. Between this micro-locality and expanded globalization, Thresholds seeks to explore our changing relationships with our streets and one another: how do we choose where to turn our look, how do we capture others and how do we allow ourselves to be seen? This virtual exhibition investigates access to our spaces, how we reconnect in public settings, and in the wake of Covid, what has changed in our vision of the world.
The selected works will be featured online and in a virtual exhibition opening scheduled for Thursday, May 18, 7 pm PST, 2023.
1st Place winner will receive $1,000; 2nd Place winner will receive a $500 LACP gift card; 3rd Place winner will receive $250 LACP gift card.
Honorable Mentions: Other artists will receive honorable mentions.
