PHOTO HOUSE “On a journey”

On a journey’ is the theme for the PHOTO HOUSE 2017.

Once in a lifetime, we have all embarked on a journey, an exotic trip or holiday. An adventurous expedition, as a necessity, a means of escape or the only way out. There is also our daily commute alone, in a car, or on a crowded train. Travelling is the dimension of movement triggered by the unstoppable search for something new, or unusual. It also represents self-exploration of our inner thoughts and hopes, which may be faced with both excitement and fear. Photographers are invited to capture the emotions which go beyond the immediate experience of travelling, to include the diverse worlds which conflict and coexist simultaneously in modern life. All visual interpretations of these concepts are welcomed. Documentary and conceptual, as well as storytelling and abstract.

The Competition is curated by Lichena Bertinato and organised by the Board. Images will be selected by the Judging Panel.

15 artists will be selected to be part of the Photo House Collective Exhibition at Le Dame Art Gallery.
