Calling all photographers! We’re excited to announce an open call to submit images to our next photo book! Like Magic Hour, this one will be 100+ pages and we’ll be aiming to feature work by around 60 photographers. The theme for this one is CIRCLES.
Even though circles appear everywhere, there is something about the shape that I find fascinating. Have you ever wondered why manhole covers are round? Probably not, unless you’re friends with me and I’ve already annoyed you with this nerdy topic. The reason is that a circle can’t fall through a smaller circle shape (it’s a curve of constant width meaning its width is the same in all directions). If a manhole cover was a square or a triangle or almost any other shape, it could easily fall through the opening. Corners are also weak points. In math terms, a circle actually only refers to the boundary of the shape, a disc is a term for the whole shape including the inside. So I guess the theme for this book might also be discs. Okay, I’m getting off track!
We want to see the most interesting images of circles you’ve got. Strange, beautiful, unforgettable, show us something unique. You might have a bunch in your archive or maybe you’ll be inspired to shoot something new. You could take a photo of the sun or the moon, or a pebble, an apple, an eye, an egg, maybe a mirror, or a spiderweb. You get the idea.
