Allow me to elaborate a bit on the theme, using the images above as examples (these were from the 2010 show). I’m not as interested in images which feel staged or planned, I’m looking for images of things you notice in the world around you—the way the sun reflects off a window, or a strange juxtaposition—fleeting moments, serendipity. Funny things, beautiful things, weird, inexplicable things. A kid finding some shade (photo by Ken Lamug), a bag that looks like heart (photo by Seth Fluker), a disembodied arm smoking (photo by Tatum Shaw).
I realise that many parts of the world are still in various stages of lockdown, so I want to encourage you to submit existing work which fits this theme. We don’t want anyone going out and shooting photos until it is absolutely safe to do so.
