Theme:: "Mirage"
Extended Deadline:: April 14th, 2015
Juror:: Aspen Hochhalter

A mirage decieves our sensory perception, often pinning the real against the fantasy. The most rationale, well-guarded and brilliant minds can easily be tricked and hacked by sleight of hand, optical phenomena, or power of suggestion. As photographers, we trust our cameras to record and to communicate a verifable truth to varying degree but with so many variables involved in the production and design process, such as lens choice, filters, perspective, color and composition, depth of field and much more, the photographic image can at times be used as a tool that generates "mirages". This year's edition of Lux is looking to publish the best and creative examples of "mirage".
