photo call for submissions

Impeached is thrilled to announce an open call for artists working in the photographic medium to contribute to an upcoming photo book titled:

Becoming Poison: A Lens On The Toxic World of Plastic

This project is dedicated to exploring and exposing the profound effects of plastic in its various forms.

The Call

We are seeking compelling images that align with the following categories:

1. Visual Narrative: Striking images of plastic in various environments – from urban landscapes to remote natural settings. This section would aim to visually represent the ubiquity of plastic waste and its intrusion into all corners of the planet.

2. Human Element: Photographs depicting how humans interact with plastic daily in a consumer culture overwhelmed by often single-use plastics.

3. Paradox of Plastics: Capturing the material’s aesthetic appeal.

4. Fusion of Artifice: Cutting edge imagery that blends AI-imagery with the theme of plastic, highlighting the synthetic and manufactured essence of both.

Photographers from all corners of the world are encouraged to submit their unique perspectives on this global issue that transcends borders.

The veiled world of curios collecting

The veiled world of curios collecting

I used to collect everything. If I found myself with two objects of the same nature, I would find myself wanting more of them. Ten or so years back I started cutting out the general collecting and focused more so on curiosities. I’ve always loved the layers of curios shelves, skulls, bottles, objects of nature naturally formed into beautiful objects. It’s also nice to have objects that have a story behind them.

We asked four people that each have a history with drug abuse to share their experience while in a rehab journey. We took the best and worst bits from these altered real-life experiences and put them through an AI image generator. A pair of images are generated for each subject depicting the ecstasy and aftermath from their recollections. How accurately does AI capture the sentiment that words are trying to convey?
