Abandoned: Time and Place is an open call for photography that explores the theme of vacant, uninhabitable, or otherwise abandoned spaces. By capturing images of these spaces, we are able to see the ephemeral nature of each environment and preserve them, often moments before these spaces are forgotten, condemned, demolished, or otherwise lost to time. What do these vacant structures say about us as we leave them to decay during a spike in our world’s unhoused population? What is the meaning of shelter, and what-or whom-are we abandoning during these unprecedented times?
Open to international photographers age 18 years or older.
