The past year has been challenging all around the globe due to the global pandemic. Today’s humans have never experienced this kind of common challenge, although it can look very different in different parts of the world.
“We challenge photographers, amateurs, and artists of all ages to share with us the connections you see with our theme. What has this last year felt like? Can you interpret your experience in photos? Is your story a highly personal one, or will you tell a tale that is universal?”
A jury of experts aims to select the work of 50 photographers to exhibit on the Preus Museum Photography Day – Corona edition on the 28th of August.
