MIMESIS

Theme: MIMESIS
Eligibility: Open to All. Accepted media: Photography, Digital Visual Design, Video
Entry Fees: Free
Prize: Exhibition
Mimesis", Greek word for "imitation", designates a human and animal behavior aimed at the manifestation of an aesthetic cohesion - figurative and/or behavioral - with another subject or with the environment from which, through linguistic codes, we grasp a certain degree of adhesion and participation. Imitation and Mimicry recall instinctive behaviors that act as defense and survival mechanisms, but also respond to the desire to establish a connection and approach each other between living beings and the environment. Man, art and technology make this objective manifest, through the production of visual representations, and even through productions that recall the biological processes of the natural world, and social and psychic dynamics. Photographers, visual designers and video artists are called to present works corresponding to the concept of "Mimesis", in its representation, documentation and reflection.

The Fascinating Images of AAP Magazine #31 Portrait
Portrait photography is strengthened by a wide variety of forms and methods, ranging from identifying to the most sensitive approach of capturing emotions (including its potential to heighten the model or educate the audience). It goes beyond set studio photographs or ordinary family portraits to become a genre in its own right, allowing photographers to express their full creative potential. A portrait can elicit a variety of responses, including those that describe, reveal, embellish, question, and unsettle. However, if a portrait has a thousand faces, we could only display a few of them, thus in this new issue of AAP Magazine, 25 photographers from 11 different countries and four continents share their perspectives.
