Decay Corrosion Rust 2020 (New York City, NY) – Call For Artists

The New York Center for Photographic Art (NYC4PA) announces a call for artists for Decay Corrosion Rust 2020. There are new shiny things all around us. Are they as interesting as an old rusted car, peeling paint on a run down building, or half fallen walls in a dilapidated castle? There is amazing beauty in the decayed, corroded, and rusted, making those images more compelling and interesting than those of readily available brand new items.

Deadline: 8 Mar 2020

Consider the amazing textures and colors in an abandoned, dilapidated factory, the rust on an old bike, contrasting plaster and lathing on a corroded wall, and the myriad of possible captures in a junkyard. Neighborhoods, disparagingly called “run down,” are treasure troves of “decayed” tumble down houses, “corroded” discarded toys, “rusted” cars, and trash cans.
