OPEN THEME

Guest-Editor Katherine Harris Pomerantz is used to reviewing a wide variety of works on a daily basis. For JRNL 4 she’s especially interested in work that can convey fresh contemporary perspectives on our transformative moment. Also of interest to her are innovative visual approaches that push the boundaries of documentary work and conventional storytelling. All risk-taking points of view are encouraged, so if you feel your work has something new to say Katherine would love to see it!

Each of the 12 photographers selected for JRNL 4 will receive 2 full portfolio spreads alongside written feedback from Katherine, an invaluable curatorial endorsement of your work! Published photographers will also receive a complimentary JRNL Issue 4 print copy in the mail.
