From Dutch masters’ paintings to contemporary photography, the still life holds an important place in art history. This genre allows artists complete control over their subjects, providing an unparalleled ability to manipulate the scene. Often symbolic, the objects in a still life assume their own character and identities. An entire story can be told by the arrangement of a few items. Toys, collectibles, and household goods become surrogates, and natural life is given a persona. Don’t Take Pictures seeks evocative and symbolic still life photographs that show ordinary objects in a new way.
Who can enter: Open to all photographers, worldwide.
The exhibition will be published online from February 24 – May 24
Image requirements: 72 dpi; sRGB; JPEG format; No less than 1024 pixels and no more than 1500 pixels on the longest side.
Online submission of digital photographs via the website.
