This is an open call for photographers of any age, background, skill level, and artistic point of view to participate in Beautiful Empty Photo Conspiracy – a music+photography collaboration. The goal of this project is simple: to use the release of a new record from an indie band as creative inspiration for more and different art, and through this collaboration, to bring the music and photography communities closer together.

Participating artists will draw their inspiration from Beautiful Empty, the new record from John Common and Blinding Flashes of Light.
