Interior Life, juried by Strange Fire Collective


In the age of self-isolating and quarantine, video chat, and social media stories - the images we make, share, and project into the world are both personal and remote, they connect us to one another, describe our lives, and our communities. In the new realities of contemporary life, how do we communicate and connect across boundaries, both real and self-made?  Interior Life is a call for photography-based work that addresses the ways we live now - at home, online, and in the wider world.
