SETU BILINGUAL JOURNAL [ISSN: 2475-1359]
Bilingual Monthly Journal published from Pittsburgh, USA
THEME: FLAVOURS OF CITIES, TOWNS OR VILLAGES
GUEST EDITOR: DR. PIKU CHOWDHURY
“Cities, like dreams, are made of desires and fears, even if the thread of their discourse is secret, their rules are absurd, their perspectives deceitful, and everything conceals something else.”
― Italo Calvino, Invisible Cities
We thrive in the perceptual manifold offered by urban complexities and constantly shifting perspectives, that more often than not, reflect our own eternal journey through the meandering vistas of life. Sometimes we feel taxed and seek escapade in pristine nature, but if we pause to wonder at the perspectival plurality of the cityscapes, we discover a narrative as rich as a tapestry woven with mystery and magic. In abrupt notes created by a roadside musician amidst peak traffic hours or the reticent wizened balcony of an ancient building standing grotesque amidst modern blatant urban skyscrapers, there are silent yet eloquent threads of wonderous tales of love, estrangement, fears and hopes, that Calvino so beautifully points out, in the quote cited above. As we navigate the streets, roads or alleys, in cities of different countries, as a native or a traveller, the shifting hours of the day unravel marvels that invite us to pause and listen to a saga of myriad adventures engraved in every brick or stone of the urban aspirations for development and progress, interspersed with keen nostalgia for the fragrances of times lost and found. Glittering dreamy street lights or glaring infernos of monstrous constructions, hurrying strangers or a pensive beggar on the footpath, the cityscape relentlessly tells us a story to be heard, interpreted and enjoyed in our own way. Towns and villages too have their own hidden stories and magic to be discerned and unveiled by the inquisitive lens.
A photographer’s forays into nooks and corners of cities, towns or villages - in his native country and abroad, remains an eternal visual delight to all of us who are perennial travellers in our own ways, and who keep negotiating magic in every turn of the metalled road in the concrete jungle or sylvan shades of rural corners. So, here is an open invitation to all travellers at heart to unfold the drama and magic of our worn out, blatant and blazon cities and pensive towns or village corners. Some action recorded through the lens would be appreciated too.
15 [fifteen] photographs should be submitted with a fitting introduction and a few relevant lines above each photograph, all submitted in a single Word Doc file. No PDF please. Photographs should be of high resolution and devoid of any violence or prejudicial content. A short bio-note and a photograph of the visual artist should accompany the submitted word file.
Last date of submission: 25th June, 2021.
