THE OVERSTORY: A Call for Light-Based and Photographic Works About Forests, Trees, Wood, and the Memory they Contain

The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites visual artists and designers to submit works of photography or other light-based processes and media, including traditional, digital, and experimental photography, photo-etching/litho/silkscreen, photo collage, light-based/illuminated works, and more—all with a primary focus in some way on the subject or idea of trees, forests, wood.

The Overstory is part of the 2022 FotoFocus Biennial.

Trees are the breath of the world. The memory of our soul. They encapsulate carbon, breathe out oxygen. They give us wood, fruit, nuts, soil, and shade. In their long lineage they embed time, a patient record of the world we step in and out of barely noticed.

Likely the original home of our primordial ancestors, trees bore our kin like gentle matriarchs, ultimately enabling humans to achieve everything our species has done, including the destruction of the forests themselves.

In a sense, it is in the forest where the battle for the fate of all of life takes place. Therefore it is in wood where one will find the record of the world awaiting.

$40 for up to FOUR entries submitted. $5 per each additional entry.

ANNUAL CASH AWARD: The annual Manifest Grand Jury Prize will result in the awarding of one significant cash prize ($5000) to a single work selected as the 'best of the entire season'.
