We’re defining “Infrastructure” in the broadest possible terms, so we’re interested in seeing any contemporary landscape, conceptual, portrait, or documentary work depicting an underlying system that forms the basis of the world around us. So don’t let the title limit you. If you want an idea of the type of imagery we’re particularly interested in, take a look at Observations in the OrdinaryVolume 2: Subjectively ObjectiveThe Vernacular of Landscape, our Instagram Gallery, or any of our other publications. Don’t hold back though, we’re always looking out for ways to feature or publish good work, even if it isn’t right for this publication.

The follow up to Subjectively Objective’s previous call for entries, Observations in the Ordinary and The Vernacular of Landscape, which resulted in books featuring 192 artists, physical exhibitions in Detroit and NYC, online exhibitions, numerous Instagram features, and 35 Subjectively Objective monograph magazines for artists who submitted (with even more on the way, including some full size monographs). We receive so much great work that it’s never possible to include everything, so even if you’ve submitted before, we’d love to see your work again!

Once you’ve paid your submission fee, you’ll be able to download a PDF which provides further instructions on the submissions process.


*Plus shipping costs. Once the publication is ready, you’ll be able to return to the store to pay for shipping and confirm your address. We will make sure that shipping is as affordable as possible.
