The hectic pace of modern life in the 21st Century, with its endless demands at work and home, can make it seem like we are always on the go with no opportunity to take time out to appreciate life. As fashion designer Tom Ford once said, “Time and silence are the most luxurious things today”. Every now and then it is definitely worth taking a step back and enjoying the moments that allow us to revel in the peace and quiet and escape our busy lifestyles.
With this theme, we are asking you to explore the theme of serenity. What role does our immediate environment plays in preserving our peace of mind and sense of well-being? Can you capture the state or quality of being serene, calm or tranquil?
This topic is very broad and we will consider all genres of photography. From portraits of someone deep in concentration, to landscape photos of still water or candid photographs of empty streets, can you show us what serenity means to you?
