mus-mus' most recently call for entries, @ Paris, is "a return to an early and sustaining subject of photography -- Paris. If anyone out there needs some incentive, Stephen Shore and Gil Blank have kindly offered their jurying services for the competition.
As with @600 Mus-Mus will strive to use the ease and power of the web combined with the talents and camaraderie of the global photography community to develop a striking online archive of images. This time the focus is around this singular place, Paris, as seen through the vision of photographers from all parts of the world.
It is fitting that Paris, lovingly called "The City of Light" should have been one of the first and most thoroughly photographic and photographed places on earth. The list of Paris' photographers runs from Daguerre and Nadar to Brassai, Doisneau, Cartier-Bresson and from Atget to Man Ray, Kertez and Klein and many more, a remarkable number of photography's greatest artists made their mark 'a travers' Paris. Their photographs and publications have fixed in our mind's eye a vision of Paris that is beautiful, often as edgy as elegant, and always complex.
