Guided by submissions, the exhibition's narrative will foster a dialogue among the images and create a larger story
of the human experience. Small vignettes of demise, hope, action, visualization, etc. will drive a broader human
experience for the present and the future. This is not a show of truth-telling, but storytelling.
Artists may interpret the theme as they decide with potential ideas relating to broad contemporary issues or themes
that use photo-based arts as a tool to present a story of contemporary human experience – personal documentary,
social issues, environmental destruction or renewal, metropolitan or rural blight or positive urban development,
faux narratives, myth-based projects, archival or vernacular images, etc. We are complex and our experiences and
philosophies are composed of dualities.
