THEME | H20
Water is transformational; it carves the political and physical landscape of our world. Water is visualy stunning in all forms e.g. Liquid, clouds, steam, snow or ice. We use it to calm us, to inspire us and to sustain life. It is symbolic, coveted, feared and increasingly scarce. We welcome all artist interpretations on this theme. All capture types and photographic processes are eligible to submit.
