About Personal Territory
An open call for current Los Angeles Center of Photography Members only. 
It might be a land or a town we inhabit, a space that either rejected  or welcomed us, or a place we imagined a certain way before  encountering its realities. It could be our adoptive or chosen home, or a  plot of family land we never got to see. Whether concrete or imagined,  territories define how we understand our place in the world, how we tell  ourselves our histories and the stories of our belonging.
LACP’s annual Members Exhibition will delve in to our personal perspectives of–and relationships with–lands, cities or uncharted  terrains: imagined topographies and tangible locations.
Open internationally for lens-based creatives, this call invites  submissions of works by LACP members, capturing our complicated  relationships with the places that define our presence in the world.
The selected works will be featured online and in a virtual  exhibition opening scheduled for Thursday, September 14, 7 pm PST, 2023.
