Open Call: Photography and Extinction

This Deadline Expired: Sunday, July 15, 2018

Now You Don’t: Photography and Extinction
Online Exhibition

Deadline: Sunday, July 15, 2018
Entry fee: $5 for 3 images

The degree of ecological unraveling now underway has no precedent in human experience. Due chiefly to habitat loss, invasive species, human overpopulation, pollution, and overharvesting, experts fear that nearly half of all species currently living on earth may be extinct in thirty to forty years.

What does it mean to watch species disappear? What does this disappearance look like? How can ecosystems and their destabilization be visualized? How are the causes, effects, and issues related to extinction being documented and/or interpreted within photographic media?

In the In-Between is seeking photographic work of all types that register this extinction crisis.

Submissions may address, but are not limited to, the following topics:

-Endangered/threatened/vulnerable species and ecosystems
-Causes and effects of mass extinction
-Conservation efforts
-Interspecies ethics and care
-Animal remains and fossils
-The loss of non-plants and non-animals (such as invertebrates or fungi)
-Degradation of culturally meaningful ecosystems
-Direct and indirect effects of human activity on natural ecosystems
-Tensions between documentary and artistic photographic modes
-Issues of human violence against animals
-Ethical implications of environmental aesthetics
-Strategies for mobilizing compassion for sentient beings
-Human extinction

She investigates the visual contrast and harmony where human-made structures and nature intersect. Her paintings are strongly influenced by the graphic stylizations and compressed spaces of Japanese ukiyo-e prints. Kishita’s paintings are in a number of private/corporate collections, including Toyota, Capital One, and Kaiser Permanente. She has participated in artist residencies in New Mexico, Russia, and Iceland and exhibited at the Sharjah Art Museum in the United Arab Emirates and the Museum of Non-Conformist Art in St. Petersburg, Russia.
