Call for Entries: Diffusion Magazine Group Showcase 2012 “The Muse”

Group Showcase 2012
muse: the goddess or the power regarded as inspiring a poet, artist, thinker, or the like.

‘Muse’ is a concept deeply seeded in the exploration of photography. Tina Modotti was the well-documented muse of Edward Weston. Paris was the muse of Eugene Atget, while some might argue that Edward Steichen’s muse was photography itself.

For this call we are considering works that address the concept of ‘The Muse.’ Your interpretation of what ‘muse’ means is entirely personal and we challenge you to think beyond the more common notions of the concept. Please provide a short artist statement explaining your ideas on what ‘muse’ is for you and how you’ve incorporated it into your work.

This call for art is open to all photographers internationally. All processes and techniques are welcomed but understand we are looking for unconventional photographic methods and alternative photographic processes.

All published photographers will receive a complimentary copy of Diffusion, Volume IV, 2012.

Best of Show will also receive a copy of Diffusion Volume II, III and a feature spread in “Editor’s Selection”.

1st and 2nd place photographers will receive a feature spread in “Editor’s Selection”.

Honorable Mentions will also be recognized.
