"Call for entries: Put yourself in the picture"
2001-01-03 until 2001-02-01
Center for Photography at Woodstock
Woodstock, NY, USA United States of America

A/ Show us pictures of you: Who you are, where you came from, or who you want to be; self portraits, identity, essence, persona, psyche, spirit, heart; what surrounds you and who you love - images can encompass home, family: friends, work, sanctuary, mystery, play; a visual diary or bedside journal of dreams. Send photographs that mirror your hopes, desires, regrets, and fears. Open doorways to your past and windows that revisit your childhood. Portraits, visual symbols, and autobiographical stories welcome.

B/ Step into someone elses shoes: What do you see from hereNULL Can you picture a room with a view - eye-spy and visualize a world unknown or far too familiar - like Goldilocks and the three bears - what feels just rightNULL Dress up in a mask, travel to a foreign city, or imagine a world youve never seen. Discover identities and relationships both real and make believe. Make a wish list; show us glimpses of a time or person long gone or a treasured site well preserved; can you understand anothers dramas, realities, tragedies, and passionsNULL How would you perceive a life different from your own - be a circus acrobat for a day or travel to the recent past - Portray strangers on a train, different cultures, and constructed fantasies. Impressions, duplications, snapshots, and fictions - if you could be anyone or anything in any time from history - for just a day - imagine how it would feel, where would you be, and what would you be doingNULL Oh! to be Queen for a day - Is it a still from a film or a character from a novelNULL Is it your own past, future, vision, or that of a cherished oneNULL Envision yourself where you most want to be today or spin predictions for the world, as you want to see it twenty years from today.
