Call for Photographers: The Figure in the Landscape
For International artists

The Figure in the Landscape with curator Emma Powell.

The relationship between a figure and its landscape context can be powerful. Landscapes are often presented as pristine places, without human presence.  However, figures within landscapes can play dynamic roles as scale elements, protagonists in a narrative, or mysterious presences. Sometimes figures can ask more questions about a place than they can answer. For this exhibition we seek photographs that extend beyond documentation of place to bring a human element into the natural or urban landscape.
