THE PASSPORTE IS AN ONLINE FINE ART SPACE DEDICATED TO CONTEMPORARY PHOTOGRAPHY THAT AIMS TO NOURISH THE CREATION OF SUCCESSFUL ART
passporte prize EXHIBITION
Theme: Surreal Photography
Congratulations to the photographers selected for the Passporte Prize for Surreal Photography exhibition. These images transcend reality and convention, drawing the mind’s eye to look again, to reconsider the ordinary by giving exposure to layers of implication that lie beyond the surface of their compositions. Each photographer achieves this with their particular technique and artistry, creating images that range from the playful to the disturbing, each one, thought-provoking.

salon Call for entry
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. Due November 5.

RECENT FEATURED ARTISTS
Below are our most recent solo exhibitions, where artists are invited to showcase a project or body of their work.
Marti Corn’s Road to Nowhere is a meditation on the struggle to make a home where no hope of one exists. Her sensitive, yet stark, montage of the daily movements of hundred of thousands of people from a multitude of cultures, on their way to and from the Kakuma refugee camp in Kenya, imparts the endless purgatory that these families are enduring.
Yukari Chikura’s Fluorite Fantasia ( Looking For My Father) is a pilgrimage through universes that range from the miniature and personal to the vast and cosmic, in search of her father who fell silent before she had a chance to preserve his memories.

These images open our eyes to the spirit of the locations and people they depict. We are left curious about the life that lies beyond the frames we see. They go beyond the visual and titillate our other senses as well, challenging us with emotional insights and the movement of time as it passes by the subjects of these photographs.
RECENT SALON EXHIBITIONS
The forms here range from the constructed to the organic. We are moved by the emotional depth of some of the images—visual geometry that, in its grandeur or design, isolates and emphasizes a private human moment. Other images capture the tender fascination with which we regard nature, at once orderly and random. Reflections and shadows create new geometries wherever light moves, it creates fleeting moments of beauty, humor and often, awe.
These images respond with empathy to our relationship with our personal health and that of others in our lives. The subjects in these photographs are in varying stages of struggle and victory as they assert or reassert their humanity over the course of nature.
These images respond with intensity to the emotion resonating in the functional spaces we construct. The structures in these photographs span the spectrum of spaces built for nourishing our bodies to spaces that nourish our souls.
