Call For Entries: Recollection Photo Contest – Reconstructing the Past

Photographing a culture in the here and now often means photographing the intersection of the present with the past.” – David Duchemin

We often get caught up ‘living in the moment’ that we forget the beauty of change and growth that shapes our present world. Photographs allow us to prove these changes, to preserve a moment in time, to relive memories that may otherwise be lost in the past. Those images that you will remember for a lifetime – the ones that still make an impact regardless of the number of years that have passed – embody appreciation for photography’s element of preserving the past.

In Duggal’s Recollection Photo Contest: Reconstructing the Past, we invite you to recreate an old image (photograph or artwork) or an old personal memory.

If you choose to recreate an old image, it can be a historical or personal image. Both images must be submitted in order to be considered for the contest.

If you choose to recreate an old memory, please submit your same image TWICE (upload your recreated memory as the “old image” AND the “new image” in the entry form). Also, briefly describe your memory in the “description” portion of the entry form.

  1. I was going to say the same thing graymatters said but foatoce beat him to it. Anyway, the program in the first post is Irfanview. I’ve used it for bulk conversions and it works really cool because it can rename the files and stuff too automatically. I did a time lapse job so I had several hundred pictures to convert and Irfanview was perfect.
