As Entertaining As Possible
This year’s theme is intended to be a play on the everyday absurdities of our consumerist society, where the expressiveness of one’s excessive desire has reached an unprecedented height. The country of France, being the birthplace of photography, is also where such social phenomenon is often being criticized and reflected upon. It’s not a coincidence that we are putting these two subject matters together, as we remind ourselves through the essential function of photography what appropriate attitudes and positions shall be held towards a modern world vastly driven by principles of consumption.
