TitleNow You Don't: Photography and Extinction

Now You Don't: Photography and Extinction
Online exhibition In the In-Between
Juried by Stephanie Amon, gallerist and writer

The degree of ecological unraveling now underway has no precedent in human experience. Due chiefly to habitat loss, invasive species, human overpopulation, pollution, and overharvesting, experts fear that nearly half of all species currently living on earth may be extinct in thirty to forty years.

What does it mean to watch species disappear? What does this disappearance look like? How can ecosystems and their destabilization be visualized? How are the causes, effects, and issues related to extinction being documented and/or interpreted within photographic media?

In the In-Between is seeking photographic work of all types that register this extinction crisis.

Submissions may address, but are not limited to, the following topics:

-Endangered/threatened/vulnerable species and ecosystems
-Causes and effects of mass extinction
-Conservation efforts
-Interspecies ethics and care
-Animal remains and fossils
-The loss of non-plants and non-animals (such as invertebrates or fungi)
-Degradation of culturally meaningful ecosystems
-Direct and indirect effects of human activity on natural ecosystems
-Tensions between documentary and artistic photographic modes
-Issues of human violence against animals
-Ethical implications of environmental aesthetics
-Strategies for mobilizing compassion for sentient beings
-Human extinction

Selected entries will be included in the online exhibition Now You Don’t: Photography and Extinction, to open on In the In-Between in Late Summer/Fall 2018.
