CALL FOR PAPERS - Alternative Photographic Exposures

Scholars/professionals in the field of photo-art, photo-documentary, photojournalism and related disciplines are invited to submit papers or commentary (and images) relating to the theme of the alternate realities in contemporary culture. Some of the questions this issue seeks to examine are:

  1. How do photographic narratives illuminate social and political issues?
  2. How discussions of the photographic narrative might be imagined outside the comprehensive of the documentary/photojournalistic genre?
  3. The future of alternate realities in visual narratives as a meaningful vehicle for social comment?
  4. How does photographic art, traditional or digital address social concepts?
  5. How does the post-digital photo on social media address social issues/change?
  6. How does photography explore our human condition?

This issue invites a broad range of submissions with opportunities to contribute: essays, commentary, or theoretical, referenced work from those in either current or past academia, or photographers on the themes below, (3000-4000 words); A Short story exploring narrative social or cultural themes or a photographic essay/commentary with images (1500 to 2000 words); Poetry addressing the social themes or the notions of the visual narrative including commentary on alternatives related to understanding and interpretation of the photographic narrative.

We look forward to hearing from you!
