Narrative art is art that tells a story, either as a moment in an ongoing story or as a sequence of events unfolding over time. It uses the power of the visual image to ignite imaginations, evoke emotions and capture universal cultural truths and aspirations. The Art League asks photographers to use their cameras to portray a moment in time, and invite the viewer to, perhaps, imagine themselves in the situation.
