This invitation is for all people that love photography that have an analog, digital camera or even their phone’s one, whatever they are children, students, young people or adults. The most important is that they are amateur photographers (not professional) willing to participate in sending an image on the subject of diversity. The idea is to reflect this concept of the most possible creative way, it can be through an abstract image, a portrait, a landscape, food, and objects, whatever!

Generating an instance to showcase the photography as a media of artistic expression, in which all people can participate, no matter the age they are. It was a motivation by the area of Mediation and Education of the MNBA of making this call. It is about the first organized by the Museum for amateur photographers without age limit.

During eleven years, elementary, middle, and high school were invited to participate in a similar call. However, before the interest of a wider audience to participate, this year younger people, adults and old people are involved. Thus, this initiative is added to “Retratos de la Memoria”, as a part of the activities of the Museum that look for a photography both as heritage as visual art and media of artistic expression.
