Inge Van Heerde Magic Tragic

What is normal? What isn’t? and who gets to decide?

“Normality is often perceived as something recognisable by many and something that isn’t quite recognisable can easily be labeled abnormal and misfit.

When the question of normality comes to people we can see that a great many are often struggling to fit a certain bodice. To me this seems unnecessary: I want to show the struggle but also the relief.

The blue color is a leitmotiv throughout all my photographic work.

In magic it’s the color of the soul, wisdom, trust, hope, inner peace, power, idealism and justice.”

THEME: TRAVEL Deadline: 31 August 2019

Competition Judge: STEVE MCCURRY

When traveling, the only way to discover the rhythm of life of a place is to experience it.

Each place we visit has its own particular look, ambiance, and atmosphere. Understanding its people, customs and traditions is vital and there’s always something unique to capture.

This summer we want to see images that communicate the life of a place in all its splendor, and trigger our memories. Whatever the subject may be: Street, Portrait, Landscape, Documentary... We want to share your journey, visually and intellectually - Let’s travel together!
