Hello fellow Photographer's Lounge friends, colleagues and photographers. The subject of this, our 29th Salon Challenge, is both simple and complicated at the same time (pun intentional): it is TIME itself. I am challenging you to come up with a photograph - a new one taken for this challenge, or one from your archives, or one taken for any other reason, which embodies, encapsulates and/or illustrates the concept or notion of Time. The passage of time. Elapsed time. Time as a phenomenon, time as a condition. It might be using time in a photograph to freeze, to capture, to slow down or to elongate a moment, an image, anything. Or it might be something completely different but with its own visual, photographic sense of 'time'. We all know a photograph takes place within a specific time - the moment a shutter opens and closes - but in that moment, time itself can become an event.

The photographer Richard Misrach said: “Whatever else a photograph may be about, it is always about time.”

So - and please pardon the long-winded preamble to this - I challenge you to find (from within your own photographer's archives) or create a photograph which communicates your notion of TIME.

Today is the 27th of September. To put a time-frame on this challenge, and to start the clock ticking, it will begin tonight, right now, at precisely 10:21 p.m., and it will run for the next 3 and 1/2 weeks - and end at 10:21 p.m. (Pacific Coast time) on 10/21 or October 21.

The fine print:

1. Either take pictures that match the nominated theme or select some from your portfolio. You must be the photographer that created the images in order to enter it.

2. Only one entry per salon, please. If you want to withdraw an entry and replace it with another, that is OK, but you must make it clear in the post containing your replacement pictures that this is what you've done. You can add or change the title and add to the edit line to let everyone know.

3. The decision of the curator at the end of the challenge is final - don't give him/her a hard time about it: this is just a friendly photochallenge, after all!

4. The person who submitted the chosen picture will assume the responsibility of curator for the next Salon Challenge and as soon as possible post a message in a new thread in the PL Photo Challenges forum, with details of the new theme. Don't forget - that opening message must include a copy of these instructions, which also double as the rules.

5. The curator cannot enter his or her own salon.

So, with no further ado...it is now time...for Time!

Miguel

Miguel - A quick question - Can it be a variation of a photograph already posted here or over on the Fuji X Spot site? 'Just checking. Thanks in advance.

Quick answer: YES. It definitely can be a variation of a photograph already posted here or elsewhere. Good question, too....thanks for asking.
