About this Exhibition: The role of photography in our digital age cannot be overstated. From a medium whose novelty arose from its ability to accurately record the world around us, the art of photography has expanded through technology to one that should not be accepted at face value. Although staging, composition, and artistic intent have always formed the base of photographic artwork, the advance in the medium now open a world of possibilities that were not available even a few years ago. Photography 6 aims to capture the breadth within the photographic world. All works operating from a photographic origin, whether manually or digitally manipulated, raw, or incorporated into mixed media pieces, are welcome to submit.
Eligibility: Open to all artists 18 years & older, world-wide, both amateur & professional, working in all styles & schools of thought. This includes alternative and traditional artwork.
