THEME SUMMARY

(c)harumichi saito

Life, a word of countless meanings. Every existence with a soul that surrounds us or the mundane days we go through as we live. Photography that captures a single instant sometimes grants it an undying life. The passing days are thus, caught as an image, remind us of a forgotten memory or even, trap the moment of the ephemeral life. Full of hope, it encases the sincerest form of beauty. Reflect once again, on what this word represents, and challenge yourself to express your own interpretation of “life”.
[Submission Period] from November 9 to February 1
