In partnership with Magnum Photos, Textile Exchange is launching the second edition of its photography competition.
Calling all photographers
This year’s theme is Materials Matter: Textile Transformations. We’re looking for emerging photographers interested in telling the visual stories that take place when fibres and materials are cultivated, created, spun, woven, sewn, loved and cherished – gaining cultural and emotional significance through the journey.
Our collective appreciation of textiles often centres around the product itself, rather than where it came from, who created it, or what it has come to mean. That’s why this year, we are calling for submissions that explore the way we transform textiles, and how textiles, in turn, transform us.
