The aim of the Blurring The Lines call is to select, exhibit and publish projects that are a representation of the rapidly changing field of photography. It is also the opportunity to show why photography is an important medium in creating new perspectives on the world we live in, and on difficult issues we have to deal with.
This year, the competition saw the participation of 17 Photography schools worldwide, amounting to 72 projects of outstanding quality. The curators, impressed by the works submitted, made a selection of images which are going to be displayed at Fotofever and Espace 15 during Paris Photo this November, and also published in a book to reach a broader public.
Blurring the Lines will be presenting work by: Anastasia Mityukova, Carson Gilliland, Elena Aya Bundurakis, Karl Ketamo, Chaïm Dijkstra, Judit Flóra Schuller, Debbie Schoone, Frijke Coumans, Remy Ugarte Vallejos, Suzana Mendes, Rafael Martinez, Elena Negri, Þórsteinn Sigurðsson, Suki Lui, Elizabeth Presland, Jaime Huidobro, Claire Masters, Jane Prior, Liz-Ann Vincent-Merry, Amelie Louise & Fuis Aljaz, Terry Ratzlaff and Naomi Jansen.
The four winners, Anastasia Mityukova, Carson Gilliland, Elena Aya Bundurakis and Karl Ketamo, will exhibit their work at Fotofever, the international contemporary photography art fair.
