Combat Camera: The Women Behind the Lens
Deadline: February 8
New Orleans Photo Alliance
New Orleans, LA
Combat Camera: The Women Behind the Lens exhibition is open to women in the military now or previously based in the U.S. Gulf States (Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida) who have served their country by using photography to record all aspects of military life and service using their talent, sharp aim, and a camera. The exhibit will pair official photographs from the soldiers’ military experience (in any capacity, branch, or department) with images selected from their personal lives. By pairing official and civilian images, the exhibit will provide a unique perspective on the personal and professional intersections of women serving in our military. This exhibit will be displayed in conjunction with Fleet Week 2018 New Orleans as part of Tricentennial NOLA Navy Week and Tall Ships of America.
Sponsored by: the New Orleans Photo Alliance; Tulane University: School of Professional Advancement and Emergency and Security Studies and Digital Design Programs; and all branches of the United States Military.
Submission is open to all active, inactive, reserve, and retired women who have worked as photographers for any branch of the U.S. Military. Applicants must be currently or previously stationed in the U.S. Gulf States of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, or Florida to apply.
