The 2023 PHOTOcentric theme is Hiding in Plain Sight:
We expect photography to preserve what we see in the world, yet so often it shows us what is rarely seen or invisible. Photographers are invited to consider how their medium captures what is hiding in plain sight. This might include subjects as wide-ranging as social bonds, experiences behind closed doors, natural phenomena, or structural inequity. What are the stakes of making the invisible visible through photography?
