Open April 2nd — April 23rd, 2020
Cesare Cicardini

The world is facing an unprecedented situation. It is a time of great uncertainty, and everyone is trying to settle into a new reality, a ‘new normal’ way of living, in which what once looked mundane and daily, no longer is.

While locked-down in our homes, we still believe that creativity can travel and spread more than a virus. We want to prove this to the world, so, together, here’s a call of duty that goes beyond any boundaries or barriers, to capture the untold stories that this situation has created. Moments, places, people, love, tears, family, loneliness, fear and hope. Photograph them all. Show the world the truth, through your lenses.

Open April 2nd — April 23rd, 2020.
