The second online exhibition in our Curate for the Community series, DREAMS & VISIONS explores ethereal and abstract imagery in an escape from reality through the imagining of otherworldly visions.

There are moments when the camera lens becomes a conduit for translating the intangible into the visual. Through the eyes of a photographer, ethereal landscapes and abstract concepts take on concrete form, capturing the elusive qualities of dreams and visions. The interplay of fundamental elements like light and shadow allows for images that transcend the boundaries of reality, offering glimpses into the subconscious and the fantastical.

DREAMS & VISIONS is a call for entries of surreal scenes, distorted perspectives, and manipulated subjects to serve as the language through which photographers articulate the ethereal nature of dreams, inviting viewers to embark on a journey through the realms of imagination.

Whether through long-exposure techniques, multiple exposures, film, toy cameras, or digital manipulation, we invite photographers to stretch the boundaries of the visual experience and storytelling, where dreams and visions weave narratives that transcend the limitations of words.

Some image entries will be showcased on Instagram throughout the open call and afterwards, with all selected entries featured in the group exhibition on the Shutter Hub website.

Deadline for entries: 09 May 2024 (5pm UK time)
