L.A. Photo Curator: Call for Entry: 'Boundaries' with curator Douglas Stockdale. 
www.douglastockdale.com
 
A note from Douglas Stockdale:
This submission for Boundaries was very intriguing for me, as it is a subject that I am personally working with, thus I am very interested in how others might also investigate this conceptual idea. The diversity of the work submitted exceeded my expectations, thus a challenge to determine which photograph should take top honors. My first rough cut was to make a selection of 8 to 10 images, then evaluate these in more detail as to the impact of the photographic image, how the image explored the theme and then the design and production attributes of the photograph, similar to my process to curate photobooks.

Nevertheless, the final decision for top honors was still a difficult decision.
I appreciate the opportunity to raise funds for my non-profit charity as well as enjoying the quality and depth of the submissions.
Warmest regards,
Douglas Stockdale

THEME:
Stockdale says,”How do we establish and understand boundaries and how might these be visually represented?
 
Boundaries, real or perceived, and the related concerns over these are almost universally evident: political, economic, business, gender identify, race and religion.
 
I am looking for photographs that investigate all aspects of how boundaries are a part of our lives.
 
Boundaries: Borders, demarcation, territories, space, personal, political, religious, and cultural.”
 
“We must broaden the definition of who are neighbors are, and extend the boundaries of our interest and empathy” Wendy Kopp
