WANTED: PHOTOGRAPHY SUBJECTS
The world is an increasingly complex place. The act of buying something as simple as a banana at the grocery store is laced with economic, environmental and political implications. We are presented with more selection than ever before. It can be both liberating and daunting.
With the rise of contemporary social networking tools (and increased access to information), we are beginning to understand the consequences of our buying habits. ‘Conscious consumption’ is a popular catchphrase of our generation. It is the idea that we are thinking more and more about our purchases. But it’s still difficult to understand how people are impacting through our daily buying habits.
International photographer Tim Georgeson and communications agency N/A Inc. are exploring consumer’s dilemma(s). We’re looking for bold individuals to be featured in a photo series tentatively entitled, ‘The Questions of Consumption’. The series will be an exploration of the questions that we ask ourselves as we buy stuff. And we are wondering if you might like to help us out by sharing your ‘buying’ questions, and by posing in front of the camera.
We want to know YOUR questions. Whether it’s a banana, a laptop, a vacation or a motorbike, what are your biggest questions when you’re making a purchase? What goes through your mind when you exchange money for a product or service? There are no right or wrong questions.
In the final product, each photographic subject with have his or her question accompanying the portrait. So it would be your face and your question. Together.
Interested in participating by posing for the series? Know somebody who might be interested? Submit a sample PHOTO of yourself, along with THREE SAMPLE QUESTIONS that you are confronted with when navigating purchases.
