Recent Graduates Ranji Mangcu and Gemma Carosin are finalists in Blurring the Lines Photography competition.
We are happy to announce that recent Graduates Ranji Mangcu and Gemma Carosin are finalists in the 2021 edition of the Blurring the Lines Photography competition. In this, the sixth edition, the judges received 156 very high-quality projects coming from 39 participating art schools worldwide.
This call aims to select, exhibit, and publish projects representing the rapidly changing field of photography. The curators were very impressed by the high quality of the projects this year and selected projects that deserve a broader audience. For the 2021 edition, the theme “Ethical shifts in photography,” aims to explore the power, the moral principles, and the responsibilities of photography in all its dimensions: the rights of privacy and publicity, cultural representation, appropriation, confidentiality, copyright, intellectual property, sustainability, ethics of wildlife, and nature photography, ethics in photojournalism, and accountability as well as the use of technology that started to challenge the landscape of ethics by doing things to photos without the viewer even being aware.
As finalists, Gemma Carosin and Ranji Mangcu’s work will be published in the catalogue and they will be included in the activities of the educational program throughout the year:
This project is made possible by the kind support of FOTODOK, Urbanautica Institute, European Cultural Centre, Faservice, and Paris College of Art.
The 2021 catalogue will be launched during the 3rd International Conference on Photography and Education that will take place at Palazzo Michiel, European Cultural Centre in Venice, on November 19-20, 2021.
