Fading Light – Juried Photo Competition

Posted on : December 29, 2011 Author : Clare_O'Neill
Click to Enlarge! Project Details Open to Interpretation is a collaborative book project bringing together photographers, poets and writers. Each book begins with a themed call for photos. The chosen photos become the literary inspiration for the writers' submissions. A book is created that matches each winning photo with two stories or poems that offer different interpretations of the image. The unique collaboration adds new dimensions to both the photos and the written word.
