Sometimes certain calls for entry really resonate with me and spark my imagination. I'm looking forward to going out and taking some new photos for this particular one, called plant petter:
In this call, we are specifically looking for ways of utilizing photography to illustrate the ways that people physically touch plants and fungi and nature with their bodies. The demonstration of interspecies relationships forms new pathways for thinking about our role in the Anthropocene and the climate crisis. Touching & stroking, observing & creating curiosity expands our conscious & subconscious relationships to our everyday environments.
The selected photos will be printed in a zine in April.
For fun I thought I'd share some of my favorite instant photos that I've taken of flowers at the top of this post. Something about instant film conveys a certain moodiness or sense of nostalgia to me.
