Deadline: 15 November 2021. Even the most mundane of human activities leaves evidence of its existence. Old letters and shopping lists, a once-loved stuffed animal left on the swing set, fragments of an old wedding dress, traces of writing on a long-since erased chalk board, all speak of the passage of time. Larger human activities leave boarded-up storefronts, crumbling infrastructure and repurposed structures. No matter the scale, they all leave a nostalgic hint of irretrievable past and, ultimately, of our mortality.
For this exhibition, we seek images that hint of humans come and gone by the evidence left behind.
We are very pleased that Jeff Curto will be jurying and curating this exhibition. He will select approximately 35 images for exhibition in the gallery, and 40 for our Online Gallery. All 75 selected images will be reproduced in the exhibition print catalog and remain permanently on our website, with links to photographer’s URL.
Exhibition with distinctions of Juror’s Award, Director’s Award, and Honorable Mention.
