Call for submissions: Capricious #14—Masculinity

Capricious #14 is ready to upend masculinity. By seeking out contemporary shifts in the identity and ownership of the masculine, our next issue will dismantle the social artifice and re-shape its meaning. So how do you experience masculinity? How does it occupy your space? Where does masculinity endure today, where does it thrive and falter? Show us what masculinity looks like—in all its composite identities of wild and inherent, performative and parody, theoretical and aesthetic. Alter our expectations, and re-introduce us to masculinity.

Please submit 4–12 photographs. We accept all formats and all colors. Email your submission (images should be approximately 8 x 10 inches at 72 dpi) to

Not all submissions will be guaranteed a spot in the coming issue, yet Capricious will consider your submission for future issues. Please make sure you have model (or any other legally necessary) releases for all submitted work. Capricious has the right to use published material in promotional matters.

Deadline: April 20, 2013
