C4FAP “The Works of Man” Call for Entries
Theme: The drive to create is a strong one in humanity. Whether it is massive structures like the Pyramids or the Eiffel Tower, or the tiniest computer chip, humankind has always been driven to leave its mark on the planet. "Works of Man" is an opportunity for artists to chronicle the indelible mark that has been made by these creations.
With "Works of Man", The Center for Fine Art Photography seeks to chronicle the drive to build, destroy, manufacture and dismantle, that resides in all of us. Images from the tallest building to the smallest child’s toy, the newest electric gadget to the oldest tool from the earliest people, truly anything created by the minds and hands of humanity will be considered for the show.
