Call for Participation in a Juried Exhibition

Photography as Witness: Power and Politics, the charged landscape of the 21st century

Exhibition: January 25 through March 9, 2013

This exhibition seeks artists whose photographic practice interrogates contemporary issues, and documents our global conditions and challenges. Technology has extended our awareness of events taking place around the world from the Arab Spring, the Occupy Movement to the ongoing poverty caused by corporate greed, corrupt governments, criminal organizations, and religious and tribal violence. These challenges affect the two-third of the world, emergent nations and under-reported regions of the West. It is the witnessing of the devastation of humanity and the environment that moves us to action.
