Open Call: Women Photographing Fatherhood

The Luupe is hosting an open call for an online group show of women and non-binary photographers visualizing fatherhood.

Fatherhood is evolving, beautiful, and often complicated. We want to see your visions of it.

Show us your memories of your dad: a portrait of him or a self-portrait with him. A symbolic still-life, an old family snapshot, or an abstract nod.

If you grew up without a father figure (and you’re comfortable sharing,) how did that shape your ideas of fatherhood as you came of age?

Show us your visions of any form or idea of fatherhood (editors note: this does not just have to be images representing your own dad, it can be any concept of fatherhood) through joy, grief, care, and everything in between. Images that break from traditional and heteronormative perspectives are highly encouraged.

This call is open to women and non-binary photographers. Looking for inspiration? Check out 100 Visions of Motherhood.
