NIGHT
LIFE

CLOSING: 31 JANUARY 2020

The sweet delight of an endless night. This month we are looking for images inspired by the night – in a literal or abstract way. From hazy dreams to harsh realities. From deserted backstreets to the glitz and glamor of a sleepless city. Neon lights and foreboding shadows. Show us darkness, the underworld, the hidden.

Urban street scenes, portraits, documentary, landscapes, editorial, conceptual, still life… Show us life at night!

This month’s judge
is Todd Hido

Todd Hido is celebrated for his documentation of the dark underside of American suburbia, published across over a dozen monographs. His work has been featured in Artforum, The New York Times Magazine, Wired, Elephant, FOAM, and Vanity Fair, and is held in many permanent collections including the Getty, the Whitney Museum of Art, the Guggenheim, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the de Young Museum, the Smithsonian, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
