call: Photographers for Altrove
extended deadline: 26 May 2019
Call for entries
Altrove is an open call for all the photographers that have explored the suburbs.
We use to think as suburbs as something that stands alongside, outside the centre, that stands altrove (italian for “elsewhere”). Actually they’re often the places of our daily routine: they’re the places of home, in which we live our intimacy, outside of the ever moving, never resting, urban jungle.
It is for this reason, and because of their decentered position, that the suburbs might end up being overlooked, silently sitting out of the spotlight, overshadowed by the pulsating professional, cultural and artistic heart of the city.
Suburbs: fields and factories, industrial and craft areas, but also residential areas; grey, tall and bare buildings or terraced house, fancy and refined townhouses. Nowadays suburb isn’t suburb anymore , but suburbs: a place no longer defined by a single shape, by the border’s or the edge’s pattern, but multi-faceted, fluid and ever changing.
We are searching for photographers able to offer a glance at suburbs, capable of capturing their expressiveness from a personal point of view, revealing one of the thousands shades of their essence.
The application deadlin is May 12 and the selected works will be shown in an exhibition in the city of Brescia, in the north of Italy.
