about the salon

Traditionally an exhibition of works of art by living artists, our Salon is an opportunity for photographers to showcase single images, enabling them to build an audience and dialogue around their work. Photographers are expected to submit a single image on the theme.


Across the world, the contemporary individual is dealing with an increasing barrage of stress factors, ranging from the political and economic, to the technological and social. For many, intimate family can be a refuge, an escape, maybe even a blanket of comfort.

For this call for entry, we seek photographs considering not just the“natural family” but also the“chosen family;” the relationships we cherish, the relationships in whose embrace we thrive. We are open to your personal vision of this theme.



Photos from eligible submissions will be selected for a group exhibition and displayed on ThePassporte.com, and highlighted through social media to our over ten thousand viewers.
