Following Tsoku Maela’s selection of winning images for our recent OPEN CALL competition, this compilation of 20 images represents some of the other talented photographers whose work struck us and left a mark. Each a stunning image worthy of exposure and attention…
An Open Call can be tricky to navigate; parameters are abandoned and the artist must rely on instinct and self-assurance to select a satisfying piece work – but, with all that too comes freedom. This call is an opportunity to celebrate our far-reaching community, emphasizing the inclusive nature and personal development aspect of the visual arts cohort.
When selecting for editor’s picks we’re always searching for those striking but unrefined photographs that have potential as an unforgettable single image, whether from a broader series or not. We enjoy the accompanying text some photographers submit with their images, and while not always necessary it can be relevant when understanding the work in full context.
These are intended to be a conversation starter… so feel free to join the discussion on our social networks.
