Look around in nature and you will very rarely see a straight line. Curves are everywhere, whether it’s a winding river, rolling hills, or the petals of a flower. In fact, even the human form is quite curvy, for both men and women. But curves exist in man-made items, too, such as the wheel of a bicycle, the arch of a bridge, or the brim of a baseball cap. And in many cases, these everyday curves can be quite beautiful. For this assignment, we are asking you to capture the glorious curves of the world. How you photograph them is up to you. They could be so isolated from their subject matter that they almost appear abstract, or simply “the thing itself.” The great thing about an assignment like this is that it might open your eyes to how wonderfully curvy the world really is.
Deadline for submissions: June 1, 2018 (Images will appear in our September 2018 issue.)
