Abandoned: Time and Place is an open call for photography that explores the theme of vacant, uninhabitable, or otherwise abandoned spaces. By capturing images of these spaces, we are able to see the ephemeral nature of each environment and preserve them, often moments before these spaces are forgotten, condemned, demolished, or otherwise lost to time. What do these vacant structures say about us as we leave them to decay during a spike in our world’s unhoused population? What is the meaning of shelter, and what-or whom-are we abandoning during these unprecedented times?
Open to international artists age 18 years or older.
This exhibition is open to photographers only. All traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.
This exhibition will run during the 2021 Louisville Photo Biennial and within walking distance of the St. James Art Fair, one of North America’s largest and prestigious art fairs. Abandoned: Time and Place is a juried exhibition open to all levels of photographers, but early entrants and established artists will have their work reviewed for future group and solo exhibitions. This exhibition will be highly publicized and featured in local media. Multiple image submissions will be juried as a body of work, so please have that in mind. Hit us with your best shots!
