Photography is the recording of patterns of darkness and light. Shadows enhance the relationships of subjects in an image, they give definition and dimension, which compliments the quality of the light values.
The Black Box Gallery will be looking for a range of how shadow and light are interpreted by contemporary photographers.
Selected images will be exhibited.

Kudzu - The Vine that ate the South

„The vine that ate the south“ is the common description for kudzu, a highly invasive plant, which grows everywhere in the Southern States of America. Kudzu was introduced into the US in 1876 from Asia. Especially during the Great Depression it was widely cultivated as part of the New Deal programmes to stop soil erosion. Today kudzu is a huge problem. The plant easily overtakes complete woods, sometimes even houses or mobile homes. 

Since 2010 plainpicture photographer Sabine Bungert and Stefan Dolfen have been working on long term projects together. They are interested in the development of cities and landscapes due to social changes. Their project on Kudzu is now available as a book.

In Conversation With The Land

How we think about and engage with the land has been an ever-evolving relationship. As we come to terms with the climate crisis and how human intervention in the land has irrevocably changed our planet, photographers' and artists' images help us understand these essential conversations. The Centre of Fine Art Photography in Boston gives an opportunity to explore loss, longing, mystery, and hope.

Submission deadline: July 18th, 2021
Museum of Fine Arts, Boston
Exhibition Dates: September 3 December 31st, 2021
