Guest Room aims to spark collaboration. Varun Gupta, Director of the Chennai Photo Biennale in India, and Arpan Mukherjee, co-founder of Studio Goppo, a photography research studio, have developed the theme for the submissions: "Metamorphosis".
This open call invites artists to explore the theme of "Metamorphosis" within the realm of alternative photography. Submissions that embrace the ever-changing nature of materials, processes, and concepts and offer a unique lens to examine the digital representation of analogue images are encouraged.
This call is open to photographers and artists working with historical photographic practices that include but are not limited to cyanotype, salted paper, van dyke brown, gum arabic, gum oil, wet and dry plate collodion, silver gelatin processes, and other technology-based interventions.
Prizes include a 1.000€ Guest Room Scholarship and an online showcase on Der Greif.
Participants unable to contribute financially can send an email to email@example.com to receive a fee waiver.
