Since 1979 I have tried to create a form of complicity between my camera and the people I photograph, who are willing to let us look inside their soul through their eyes. Today, their pictures are exhibited in several cities around the world as part of the Fenêtres de l’âme (Windows to the soul) and Chants de café (Soul of Coffee) exhibitions. With this contest, I invite you to submit photos of those exhibitions and share your own vision of the stories told by those pictures.

How to participate:

1) Take a picture of one of Reza’s exhibitions with a digital camera or the Instragram app of your smartphone

2) Share your photos on Instagram using the following hashtag: #myvisionreza

3) Or send your pictures to photo@webistan.com , indicating your first and last names on each file. JPEG/JPG files of 2 Mb max each.

4) A maximum of 10 photos by participant.

5) The deadline to enter is November 3rd 2013.
