PHOTEX 2023: “Water”

Layla underwater

The theme of PHOTEX 2023 is  WATER

Dip your toe in the water, venture into uncharted waters and submit your results to PHOTEX, come hell or high water!

Interpret WATER in any way you like, be it literally, metaphorically, compositionally, technically, socially, linguistically, etc. Whatever makes sense to you and helps you create your pictures is welcome!

For inspiration, the Amicale photo club will organize photography workshops around the theme. Let us know if you’d like to be informed about upcoming workshops (
