From the New York Times:
This summer, the New York Times opinion department will present a special interactive project about high-rise buildings within its Op-Docs series. It will be centered on four short documentaries directed by the filmmaker Katerina Cizek and produced by the National Film Board of Canada in collaboration with The Times.
The project explores the history and future of high-rise buildings and their relationship to issues of equity, segregation and social responsibility in cities around the world. While the first three documentaries will draw on The Times’s extensive photography archive, the fourth film in the project will consist solely of images submitted by the public.
We’re inviting you to contribute a photograph that illustrates your experience of living in or around high-rise buildings.
By “high-rise” we mean any kind of vertical housing, including mass housing complexes, with many floors. Your photo could be a shot – a scanned still, an Instagram or other digital image – of your current or past living space, interior or exterior, or a picture that somehow represents what it is like to live up high. You may submit a candid photo of your ancestors, family or friends in the space, from any time period, and from any part of the globe. Please also tell us the story behind the image. We will choose from what we receive to depict the culture of high-rise buildings through your perspective, and in your words.
Please submit by April 15, 2013 at 6 p.m. Eastern time if you would like your photo(s) to be considered for the video.
