“We look at the world and see what we have learned to believe is there. We have been conditioned to expect.... but, as photographers, we must learn to relax our beliefs.” Aaron Siskind 1903-1991 worked primarily as an /abstract/ still photographer in black and white. Siskind is also known for his work as a photography educator. He taught at Black Mountain College, The Institute of Design at IIT, the Visual Studies Workshop, and RISD. http://www.aaronsiskind.org/images.html Look, don't submit your entry until you really take some time to study Siskind and READ THE RULES!
