Call for Submission

Sukanya Ghosh, from the series Journal, mixed media, 2016

From Sukanya Ghosh’s family archive. With the use images from her family archive, sometimes of unknown provenance, she de-contextualises the original works in order to create an alternative narrative thread. 


With our recently launched online fora—Pix Posts— we have been sharing the perspectives of practicing photographers, curators and writers and thereby exploring varied aspects of photography in South Asia through an assortment of social, political and personal points of view. With this open call, we are happy to feature written articles, audio interviews, or even video submissions on family archives and local histories or even critical viewpoints about ongoing events of interest, in order to unearth the evolving narrative and trends around photography/image-making as well as its reception and curation. We are therefore extendedly interested in events and conventions through which the discourse around photography in South Asia is exponentially growing—including exhibitions, lectures, workshops and even publications: whether they be personal productions, independent articles and university press editions.

Call for submissions

If you are writing on any of the indicated subjects or areas—or have any other spheres of associated interest to discuss or think through—even as an opinion piece about photography from/in the region—we would be glad to receive your submission.

The submission can be in any language, but we would really appreciate a translation of the same in English. Previously unpublished works are given priority.
