Volume 7: Submission Fee


Selected artists will have their work included in the book project & physical exhibition in Detroit

Everyone who submits will receive a $15 credit towards purchasing the resulting book project

The Submissions Deadline is June 22nd, 2020



We’re accepting submissions of up to 20 images for Obscura Land Volume 7, an upcoming photo book project & exhibition. The Submissions Deadline is June 22nd, 2020. Obscura Land Volumes are in depth photo book projects that aim to function as art objects in their own right. The submission fees will go towards creating the best Volume 7 possible. Everyone who submits will receive a $15 credit towards purchasing the resulting book project, regardless of whether their work is accepted. In addition to appearing in the book and online exhibition, accepted artists will also have the opportunity to participate in a physical exhibition at Subjectively Objective‘s Detroit area gallery space.

We’re interested in seeing all types of photography for Volume 7. We also run Subjectively Objective, so we’re always looking out for ways to feature or publish good work, even if it isn’t right for this project. Our previous call for entries resulted in the books Observation in the Ordinary and The Vernacular of Landscape (which featured work from 192 artists), physical exhibitions in Detroit and NYC, numerous online exhibitions and Instagram features, and Subjectively Objective monographs for 35 artists and counting. 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.
