"Call for Artitsts: Passion"

Passion is fuel for life. We are born with passion to create with passion. We love, work and play
with passion; many pray with passion--and for it. Our need to touch is passionate: it binds us together as
couples and families, communities and nations. Yet passion, a strange and lovely fire, has a volatile
personality. The ying and yang of love and hate, passions of politics—or of the heart--can result in
extraordinary achievement, and unspeakable destruction. Now “Passion,” an exhibition sponsored by PWP
and juried by renowned photographer Elinor Carucci, invites members to present images reflecting this life
force. Please give us your most evocative work, images from daily life and from a life you can barely
imagine, images that stir the soul and echo in the mind, with passion.
ELIGIBILITY: Open to all current PWP members paid up to date. All types of photography-based work
may be entered, including digital, alternative processes, photo collage and montage. Maximum print size is
16" x 20" or 20" x 20”. Work previously exhibited in a PWP show is ineligible. Submission to a PWP
exhibition does not guarantee acceptance.
JUROR: PWP is pleased to announce that Elinor Carucci, a photographer of raw and startling intimacy,
will jury this exhibition. The author of two books: Diary of a Dancer, SteidlMACK (excepts appeared on
