英国王立人類学協会(RAI)より、Body Canvas Photo Competitionの案内がきています。詳細は以下のメールを参照にしてください。要点は、テーマは1)タットゥーとスカリフィケーション(医療用のメスや器具で直接皮膚や身体を装飾する行為)、2)ピアッシングと身体の再成形です。参加は人類学、写真、身体等に「学術的に」関心がある者は誰でも参加できます。この夏休み、これは凄いぞ、美しいぞ(社会、文化、芸術的に)、というボディ装飾に出会ったら、是非、撮影してキャプションをつけ、コンペに参加してみましょう。ただし、R指定、アダルト系や性的志向、生殖器などの写真は受けつけられませんし、日本の場合、ボディ装飾は社会的にネガティヴな側面がありますので、撮影対象者や撮影場所には十分に配慮し、トラブルが起きる可能性がある撮 影は絶対に回避してください。参加希望者は、テーマに関連した写真(10MB以下、4枚までOK)とキャプションが必要となりますが、詳細は以下にリンクしてください。英文等が理解できない場合は慶田までご連絡ください。私のほうでまとめて応募します。締め切りは2012年9月30日!
