The Journey: Photographs Along the Way
Deadline: October 15
Morean Arts Center
St. Petersburg, FL
Juror: Sam Abell, National Geographic photographer
Heads down, earbuds in, often we are so consumed with getting to the destination we don’t notice the interesting world around us as we travel. What does this world of travel look like? The Journey asks photographers to portray everything but the destination. Think about a journey, from epic to ordinary commute, and all that goes into it–the packing, the navigation and the way you get there. The trains, planes and automobiles, yes, but also the biking, hiking and boats. Consider the places you stay–the hostels, hotels, motels, tents and backs of buses. Think too about the emotional ups–and the downs–of travel itself. Photographs of travel’s well known moods–the boredom of waiting as well as the exhilarating anticipation of arrival–are also what this exhibit is about. It’s The Journey, not the destination.
The Morean is pleased to invite photographers currently residing in the US to submit entries for possible exhibition in the 2016 national photography exhibition “The Journey: Photographs Along the Way.” This exhibition will be held at the Morean Arts Center, January 12-February 26, 2016.
