We are pleased to announce the open call for Balam Contemporary Photography Magazine Issue N6 by the theme of MESTIZX. We invite photographers and projects from all over the world to rethink MESTIZX as it intersects with the mixture of lives present today. We see individuals as mixed beings, mestizx in blood, skin, inspiration and gender. We would like to ask in what ways you see our generation as mestizx. If we can break the order of ethnicities and mix amongst each other, why can’t we break the order of genres and redefine the term as well?
This issue seeks to empower the concept of Mestizx and all those working with it. We see a fusion of genders and geographies today as we have reached a point where one can identify as neither man nor women, that there is not only the binary and encouraging us not to be regulated, to choose what our mind and body travels along with the path of self-acceptance and evolution.
The selected photographers will appear in the printed issue of Revista Balam N6. MESTIZX.
Balam is a contemporary photography magazine that shows series of emerging and established artists from Latin America and the rest of the world. We are a space dedicated to contemporary image based in Buenos Aires that focuses on the diffusion of artists who seek to express and show their work frontier free. Our goal is to give an in-depth look at the evolution and consequences of this contemporary manifestation, as well as to explore and examine the multiple forms of photography.
