The call
“Unexpected Narratives” is a call for hand-printed photographic imagery using “alternative processes”, such as: photogravure, photopolymer intaglio, cyanotype, gum bichromate, carbon, salt, lumen, anthotype, gumoil, etc; basically, any alternative to straight digital printing. The theme of “Unexpected Narratives” can be widely interpreted...literally, figuratively, expressively, psychologically, visually, etc.
