The Atlanta Photography Group (APG) is now accepting entries of photographic-based images in honor of the upcoming exhibition at the High Museum of Art of André Kertész’s work on Carte Postale. https://high.org/exhibition/andre-kertesz-postcards-from-paris/
This CFE asks artists to submit work focused on creating new ways of seeing their surroundings. Images may cross photographic practices and may include fine art, avant-garde, photojournalism, documentary work and more. What would your photographic postcard consist of and where would it come from in this moment – home, a road trip, your studio or maybe a place within your imagination or memory? Like Kertész’s images, we want to see not only what is around you in a physical, or literal form, but also how you interpret what you see in a very personal and intimate way and how it speaks to you.
