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.


Health and Medicine

The practice of medicine, and our efforts to manage the health of the human mind and body can be seen as our struggle to redirect nature. Complicating this universal endeavor are our varied cultural attitudes toward pain, healing, and the dynamics and hierarchy of the patient-caregiver relationship. Driven by spiritual motivations, as well as the moral imperative to protect and preserve the person while ensuring humanity’s survival as a species, medicine all over the world utilizes the most advanced science and technology a community can access and afford.

For this salon exhibition, we seek photographs that incorporate themes of physical and mental health, the practice of medicine, and the ripples these leave in the lives of the human beings touched by them. We are particularly interested in exploring what the eye and technique of individual photographers can reveal that might not otherwise stand out in our day-to-day brushes with concerns of health.


Photos from eligible submissions will be selected for a group exhibition in February 2017 and displayed on ThePassporte.com, and highlighted through social media to our over ten thousand viewers.
