"United Photo Industries is proud to once again partner with our friends and colleagues at Visura to launch an open call to Visual Artists working in photography, film, or any visual form of stories related to Global Climate Change & Global Warming.
The work can focus on the following themes:
EVIDENCE ~~ CAUSES ~~ EFFECTS ~~ SOLUTIONS
The Grant has a three-tiered mission:
1. recognize and support professional Visual Artists worldwide working in photography, film or any visual form of stories;
2. support an ongoing or a new project;
3. get the work of Visual Artists working on stories related to global climate change and global warming in front of key industry editors, scientists and leaders worldwide."
"Join Mark Steinmetz, a leading Southern artist whose photographs capture the distinctive character of the region, as he shares insights on the exhibition Mark Steinmetz: Terminus, at the High (March 3–June 3) photographs in, around, and above Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. His black-and-white photographs lend a poignant perspective on how this gateway to the wider world is a place of delightful paradoxes. Mark Steinmetz: Terminus is the latest chapter in the ongoing Picturing the South project, for which the High Museum commissions artists to create original bodies of work that offer new perspectives on the South’s social and geographical landscapes."(photo credit: © Mark Steinmetz)
