Regardless of your political leanings, the world, in all its beauty, can be a complex and terrifying place. Especially in light of the 2016 US Presidential election, we approach an uncertain future. For Humble Arts Foundation's final open call of 2016, we'd like to see photo-based work that represents the world to come. Is it a dystopia overrun by robots and holograms? An egalitarian paradise? The death of photography as we know it? A self-conscious riff on Fritz Lang's Metropolis? Something more abstract?
Show us your vision or interpretation of the future. And while you're at it, listen to this Milemarker record from which we borrowed the name.
