The Big Reveal: Telling Truth in an Age of Fiction
Photography today can feel invisible. It saturates the news, social media, advertising, and vernacular uses in everyday life. Yet, photography’s ubiquitousness gives it a quiet power in numbers. It aids in the telling of important truths and lies; reinforcing rhetoric and debunking myths. Photography has the power to tell a story from an individual perspective and to be understood by the masses. The Big Reveal: Telling Truth in an Age of Fiction explores how photographers today are revealing truths and addressing the roles of fact and fiction in contemporary society.
Photographers working in all subject matters are encouraged to apply.
