There was a popular and silly song in the 1950's, "Close the Doors, They're Coming in the Windows".  What about those doors and windows and arches and frames and tunnels?  There are so many ways to capture them:  looking at them, or through them.  We can poke our hand out the window to test the weather, or just see a wonderful scene a little differently when framed by an arch or array of tree limbs in a park.

For this call your images can focus on the "portal" itself like a closed door or a wonderful windowsill or the view through the portal to the other side. Does it frame the main subject of the photograph or does it add another dimension, such as the distortions of old glass or reflections in windowpanes.

The Eyes of A Stranger 

This international Call for Entries is juried by Valerie Jardin.

http://valeriejardinphotography.com 

Valérie is a visual storyteller recognized internationally for her street photography. She leads workshops worldwide, writes books, produces a weekly podcast, and is an official X Photographer for Fujifilm USA. Valérie’s work can be found through the galleries on this website and on social media. 

"Making a good portrait of a complete stranger is a challenge that all serious photographers must eventually face. It is an acquired skill. 

It's one thing to take a picture of a pedestrian or stranger on the sly, and quite another to actually make a portrait of them. 

We can choose to engage them or not, but each encounter should result in a positive experience for the subject and the photographer. 

The desired end result is a strong photograph that does reveal the brief connection that we've shared.

The eyes don't lie. Nor does the camera."

What one person sees is not always the same as what another's view will be. Each person's past, coupled with their personality, provides a multitude of opinions and with that alternative solutions. One person might see a cloud as just a cloud while another sees a face, both people have a different view of the same thing.
