Takoma Park Arts and Humanities Commission ShadowPlay, Photography Screening Call For Entries:
ShadowPlay is an inaugural festival of photography presented by The Takoma Park Arts and Humanities Commission. Each ShadowPlay event will present a two-hour screening with a selection of photography based on the theme “Borderlands” along with the accompaniment of live musical performances. The exhibition will be curated by Washington Times staff photographer Allison Shelley with digital entries accepted from local, national, and international photographers. Independent songwriter Maybarduk and Bolivian singer and guitarist Marco Ovando will perform a live score.
THEME : BORDERLANDS
Fences, walls, barbed wire. Membranes, skin, coverings. Rules, jurisdictions, frontiers. Disputed, visible, invisible. What does it mean to live on a border, to break through a boundary, to be pushed to the edge? Who has the right to mark or enforce a border? Do good fences make good neighbors? In recognition of Takoma Park’s historic position, a border community, ShadowPlay has selected the theme Borderlands for its first festival of projected imagery.
Organizers invite diverse responses to this theme in the medium of photography. Spanning the range from global to local to personal, interpretations may be documentary, conceptual, or abstract – or anything that runs along the edges.
