Charlotte Flossaut, Art Direktor und Gründerin von PHOTO DOC, ruft seit 2018 während der Photodoc International Documentary Photography Fair in Paris jährlich zum Open Call. Im Jahr 2020 zum Thema 'Intimacy': "We organise an open call with a different theme each year. We seek to highlight the richness of approaches and creativity of the contemporary documentary photography. The winner will be announced at the Photo Doc. fair." In welcher Form der Salon in Corona-Zeiten statt finden wird, wissen wir nicht, aber die besten Arbeiten werden via photodocparis.com zu sehen sein.
Zur Jury gehören neben Charlotte Flossaut in diesem Jahr Valentine Zeler (In Frame), Elsa Seignol (Revers Edition), Rachel Barker (Stanley-Barker), Simon Lourié (PCP Labo Photo), Lidwine Kervella (Courrier International) und Anaïs Viand (Fisheye Magazine). Deadline ist der 10. April.
'Considering the theme, it seems essential to us that each photographer write a short text precisely related to the photos he or she will be presenting, so as to properly convey the Power of the Intimate contained in the series. To make known and transmit what happened, what was shared. Reveal what was experienced during the making of each series and which consequently could produce a paradigm shift. Welcome to new forms of visual approaches. The jury will be sensitive to the relevance of the series to the theme, the coherence of the intent, the photographic quality and the involvement of the photographer. Announcement of the winner will be done during the International Photo Doc fair - April 24 to 26. / Halle des Blancs Manteaux, 75004 Paris.'
