Amateur and professional photographers are invited to submit images which shine a light on the limitations of traditional masculinity for a chance to be exhibited at the prestigious Getty Images Gallery in Central London, to coincide with Mental Health Awareness Week in May.
Entries will be judged by an esteemed panel of professionals, including Rankin and Nick Knight, who will be looking for images which express what it is to be a modern man in today’s fast changing world.
Photographers wishing to get involved have until Monday 17th April 2017 to submit their entries. The winning photographs will be on public display at Getty Images Gallery in Central London between Wednesday 10th May – Friday 19th May 2017, with key photographs used in print and social campaigns as well as being curated into a catalogue available for purchase in support of CALM’s work preventing male suicide.
Genesis are proud to support The Calm Photography Movement and we will be supporting the unique exhibition with our exhibition production services.
About The Calm Photography Movement:
The Calm Photography Movement has been founded in partnership with LYNX to spark conversation about masculinity, mental health and self-expression through photography. The movement will raise awareness and funds for the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM), an award-winning charity dedicated to preventing male suicide, the single biggest killer of men under the age of 45 in the UK.
TCPM founders Scott Shillum & Steve Wallington explain: “We have founded The Calm Photography Movement to raise awareness of the role that photography can play in shining a light on men’s mental health after losing close family and friends to suicide in the recent past. The aim of the movement is to raise awareness and funds for the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM), an award winning charity dedicated to preventing male suicide.”
