Open Call

The face depicted on the home page is an illustrative example of a human being that has been "born out of flames", which is the theme of this year's photo competition FACES 2019. The contest attempts to approach and highlight the people, whose colors give their presence something gracefully distinct and rare. They seem like they are coming from fairy tails. They look like they are painted by flames: flaming but non-burning. They exist among us like torches. Find them. Portray them. The submission period has started on the 1st of August 2019, waiting for your own ginger captured portrait versions...
