Short Street Stories

Exhibit Around APS and dotART Associazione Culturale launch a new Open Call for entries in view of the Short Street Stories project with special guest Martin Parr.

The project

Short Street Stories is a tribute to the sardonic style of the famous British photographer Martin Parr who will be the special guest of the initiative.
The project will consist of a dedicated photographic exhibition and a photographic volume. Among the photos of the project we would have the honor of hosting some shots by Nick Turpin.

Who is it for?

To female photographers from all over the world interested in submitting single photos , but also projects and portfolios , which tell little street stories.
The participating photographers will have the opportunity to become part of an important photographic volume and an exhibition dedicated to the project.

The theme

The project will consist of rigorously street photos, capable of launching a humorous and satirical look at contemporary society. The lesson to be inspired by is that of  Martin Parr , or that of the collectives  In-PublicUn-posed  and  Burn My Eye : "anthropological" photography with an  ironic slant , able to tell   the modern world, the social differences through a new perspective and the changes going on.

The photos

For this Open Call, works that pay homage to the ironic style of Martin Parr or the surreal one of the  In-Public  and  Un-posed collectives are requested . For this call we want to avoid "sad" photos and dark tones : the challenge is to tell the dark sides of society with a satirical eye.
Each photographer is therefore free to give his works the  style  he prefers, in compliance with the guidelines indicated above.
