PHOTOCERTAMEN “SHOOT THE PEOPLE

Presentation

CLOSED COMPETITION

1/ INTRODUCING PHOTOCERTAMEN’S “SHOOT THE PEOPLE" #STPEOPLE14  PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY COMPETITION

It is possible to affirm that the first images of persons coincide with the origins of photography itself, in the middle of the 19th century. David Octavius Hill and Robert Adamson documented by means of collotypes the lifestyle of the fishermen in Newhaven, Edinburgh, shortly after the first photographic "experiments" of Louis Daguerre in France and Henry Fox Talbot in England.

That photography, originated as a documentary, led to another that centred its interest on the persons and their surroundings, adopting in this way a more sociological and anthropological viewpoint. This evolution led to the most repeated photographic genre at present and that, in turn, presents greater difficulty: the portrait.

PHOTOCERTAMEN puts into motion the photographic competition "SHOOT THE PEOPLE" #STPEOPLE14 as a contest open to all the lovers of photography of persons.
