"My Own Wilderness" Countdown


One week day from today will be the release of the online exhibit for My Own Wilderness. 146 photographers from all over the world submitted images in response to a call for work examining personal meanings of wilderness...

Wilderness has many meanings in this shrinking world we live in. The traditional definition is "an area of earth untrammeled by man, where man himself is a visitor who does not remain." Where there once were immense regions on the planet that could be defined in this way, today there are fewer and fewer places 'untrammeled by man'. But wilderness can also be more than a place. It can be a state of mind, a condition of loneliness, an economic or political status. It can exist within the most populated cities as a personal space created by the individual. How do you define wilderness?

The answers from selected photographers will be released in a stunning video slideshow on November 1st in celebration of the fifth anniversary of PHOTO/arts Magazine. Mark your calendar!
