Call for photos that probe the land

The project  aims to investigate land, landscape and ideas around belonging.The photographs they have chosen are the result of an open call by the Social Landscape Project organisers.

Ordinary people have been asked to submit images taken on any tool they have access to, from professional cameras to ordinary cellphones. The images may be submitted to the project through various social media, affording immediate access for anyone who would like to take part. Submissions close on October 30 and winners will be chosen to receive a cash prize, Market Photo Workshop bursaries, a MacBook Air and an iPad. 

Some of the photographers include Sydelle Willow Smith  who took a photograph of prefabricated houses in Delft; Velempini Ndlovu, who took an image of a child playing a burnt guitar after a shack fire; Jo Meyer, who shot a gang playground in Ottery, Cape Town; and Emile Scholtz, who took a photograph of self-styled ascetics in KwaZulu-Natal.
