"The Future of Photography" is a vaguely loaded gun. Curators, ourselves included, love buzzy prompts like "Let's push boundaries," "Show us something new..." and other leading terms that hope for the next big thing. While we'd grandiosely expect every open call to expose us to uncharted ideas, we're keeping this one simple: show us something "F*cked Up."
We'll leave this open to your interpretation. Whether it's a purely mind bending visual experience that leaves us seizing in our studios, or documentary work that pushes into the unknown, we want to see it. Show us photography-based work that will make us blink and twitch like never before. And maybe even lose our lunch.
All said, if you submit work that's truly racist, sexist, homophobic, or wildly offensive in similar form, it probably isn't for us.
Deadline: August 10th, 2015
