“We are at looking to see what is happening now, who is pushing the boundaries of contemporary photography and what are the ideas that are being tested that hint toward the future of photography? Not only in terms of concept but also technique, the field is totally open from the craft skill of wet plate collodion to new media and i-phone apps. The point is how your images communicate.” - Louise Clements.

Submissions for Hijacked Vol. 4 Will be available on this page in the near future.
