Magazine on Bathing Culture and Relaxation Launches Open Call

Projects related to art, photography, and literature are accepted for the competition until July 5th

How Japan Gets Wet from the Water Issue of Hamam Magazine.
Stephanie Crohin

Hamam Magazine is not just a magazine dedicated to the culture of bathing, baths, or hammams, but a whole project aimed at liberating oneself from the "technological trappings of the modern world" and "the release of mental afflictions in the name of pleasure, relaxation, and growth." Until July 5th, the organizers are accepting projects related to art, photography, and literature.

The topics of the fifth issue are designated as “Strange.” Entries do not have to be strictly about bathing culture–they can be related to broader practices of cleansing, healing, and relaxation.

Essays, photo researches, interviews, and other printable material are accepted at submissions@hamammag.com.
