Our World in Motion


We live in a world in motion. Forever changing and growing, moving and blurring. Our job as still photographers – and your assignment – is to capture it. How do you show a world in motion? Of course, you think of bicycles blurring, people dancing, or birds in flight but also think of ripples on a lake, or wrinkles on skin. Star trails hint at the earth’s rotation as a lava flow builds a new world. Motion is progress and propulsion. Cultures and norms are forever in flux – advancing and contracting – they too are in motion.

So we ask you to sit quietly for a moment contemplating Our World In Motion, then grab your cameras and capture it!
