Call for Work: Deadline Monday 6 October 2014

The Traces Left BehindJUROR:  Matthew Christopher
DEADLINE:  Monday, October 6, 2014

Whether abandoned or discarded, lost, preserved, or memorialized, the objects and places that are evidence of our histories inspire photographs.

From an abandoned crumbling factory to a greasy pizza box left curbside, from an Incan ruin to a matted soft toy washed up at water's edge, initials carved in a tree, a soiled pile of personal effects waiting beneath an overpass, these are the clues to the treasure map of humanity. The humans who left them are palpable. 

We are drawn photograph these things before they rot or crumble or disappear entirely. They are evidence of the passage of time and, ultimately, of our mortality.
