Whilst I am busy completing the seventh and eighth chapter (I apologise, I am a little behind) with our selected images for our previous assignments #ladylike and #belonging, I would like to announce our brand new assignment for the next chapter in our soon to be published book entitled ‘Away with Words’. Our new assignment is ‘Deadpan’. We would like to see your interpretations of this assignment.
Deadpan… essentially this genre of photography means devoid of emotion. Its a subject that exists but it seems empty. There’s no happiness and there’s no sorrow. It is honest work. It is detached art. It asks more questions than it offers. I have included one of my own images below that I feel represents this aesthetic, but I want to see yours.
Please note that this section is not a ‘typical challenge’ section, this is a professional assignment for our forthcoming book ‘Away with Words’. This new book will feature twelve photographs selected from a monthly assignment challenge, each accompanied by no less than a 1000 word essay.
To take part please send your image(s) to my email address – firstname.lastname@example.org and/or to Instagram with this hashtag #tawdeapan. At the end of each month, we will gather the images that have been contributed and select one for this immersive critique.
I will personally write this essay with over 1000 words. Each critique will identify the elements, contextual meaning of these elements, interpretation and conclusion. Each critique will then be published not only on TheAppWhisperer, the world’s most popular mobile photography & art website but also throughout our vast social media channels. At the end of the year, we will publish a book featuring all of these critiques. As you can appreciate each critique will take some time to create well, so we ask, if you would like to take part to donate £10 per image that you submit (there is no limit to the number of images you submit), we feel this is fair. To do this, just select the appropriate allowance at the bottom of our donation section at the end of this post.
To date we have published chapters by the following artists: Rita Colantonio, Valeria Cammareri, M. Cecilia Sao Thiago, Peter Wilkin, Becky Menzies.
