International Call for Entries | Family Call for Entry



What makes a family? It’s complicated, but the subject of family is almost always associated with strong emotions. Family can be the people we love and sometimes the people we don’t even like. Family is often defined as a core, nuclear unit or a broad network of relatives, but all sorts of other mod- els exist: blended households, intentional communities, cultural and religious groups, sandwich generation, workplace alliances, kids, pets and together- ness. Show us what you think defines the family bond.




Katherine Ware is curator of photography at the New Mexico Museum of Art. She previously served as curator of photographs at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and as assistant curator of photographs at the J. Paul Getty Museum.
