Odesa Photo Days is quite young, but still the only one international photography festival in Ukraine and just begins to gain popularity in the international arena. It was founded in 2015 and arose as a reflection of the war in eastern Ukraine, political events and social media manipulation.
Three years in a row our festival tried to create educational platform for the international photographers, that to share knowledge, opportunities, ideas and spread the information about ukrainian photography. This year they also would like to see hidden stories from different continents, which is why they announce an Open Call for the main exhibition of the Festival, with theme “Off Limits”.

Call for submissions
Artists who explore the relationship between the Self and the Other are invited to respond with images and short positional statements for publication.
Self and Identity have become major themes of our connected lives. The ease with which we gravitate to like-minded people, the bubble we comfortably find ourselves in means that we only sometime manage to discern the difference between ourselves and other people. The bubble remains intact; wars, elections, referenda rattle our security but for many life continues as before.
As artists, we need to reach further than most. We need to approach the Otherness of the outside world with more generosity. To accept it may be that we cannot answer questions about selfhood without a recognition that the differences between people, experienced as alienation and separation, are unreal : following Paul Ricoeur and his work “Oneself as Another”, we must accept that we have too much Otherness within ourselves.
This call is to reach out to you as an artist with this shared interest and to join with me in a community of shared research. I found this line of research beginning with the cast shadow of the self and through exploring its independent, isolated and wayward behaviour. I have previously made a short monograph “Shadow:Other:myself” (ISBN 978-1977535535, preview https://goo.gl/TC6DqV )
To take this goal of community building further my intention is to make a limited edition, hardback book publication of your contributions. The book will feature 20 (approx. ) artists with images and facing text. In the first instance, two copies will be posted to each published participant. We can then discuss our next steps.
Initially, send an image and an account (200 words) to describe your Self’s response to the Other with a URL for other relevant work. The artist must confirm that they own copyright in the image and text.
On progress the selected image must be available in hi-res (3000 x 3000 pixels) — the artist will at all times retain control of copyright both of image and text. As editor I can help you with any translation from your own words, the text of the book will be published in English.
