CALLING FOR SUBMISSIONS
DEADLINE 12/1/11 Midnight EST
Images that capture a vision of the man made world around us.

We’ve been documenting the built environment since the beginnings of photography. It’s natural – our lives are entwined with and dependent upon structures of all kinds. Let us examine the genius designs, abundant materials both found and fabricated, engineering feats, beauty and function, of our constructed environments. Technical mastery has much to do with a great architectural photograph, but also an understanding of the architect’s vision, and/or the humanity that invigorates and utilizes its spaces. Whether a skyscraper or a shed, chasm span or walking bridge, from convenience store to industrial complex, public or personal (heck, an outhouse is a pertinent structure), and even the remains of such, we’re looking forward to featuring your built environments.

With an engineering degree from Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland) and an Architect/Author father (Raymond McGrath), Norman McGrath was primed for educated view of his subject. He has been photographing architecture and interiors for decades, capturing the work of major architects and designers and their well-known works. His images have been featured in the foremost architectural publications, as well as his popular book, “Photographing Buildings Inside Out”. The American Institute of Architects selected McGrath for its Institute Honor award. McGrath continues to author and co-author books illustrated with architectural photography (“Manhattan Skyscrapers”, “Skyscraper Rivals”, and New York’s Pennsylvania Station”) as well as educate and inspire students of photography at the Maine Photographic Workshops, the Palm Beach Photo Workshops, and the Calumet Institute of the University of Maryland. We are so happy that Mr. McGrath will be bringing his seasoned, distinguished eye, to the job of jurying “The Built Environment.”
