Artist Call DetailRe-Picturing Photography
For National artists
September 23 - October 24, 2015
Union Street Gallery invites artists from all over the nation working in photography to submit work to our 2015 fall national juried exhibit.
In a fast moving world where current events are fed to us digitally and instantly, photography has gained massive exposure in our contemporary climate. Union Street Gallery believes a still image has power that resonates beyond a domestic and digital platform and seeks to address a renaissance of visual narratives. We are looking to exhibit a diverse range of photographic processes and techniques, which effectively documents stories and/or intensify unobserved or ignored realities.
Participating art works may include but are not limited to: documentary photography, conceptual photography, candid portraiture, photojournalism, time-lapse photography, environmental portraits or landscapes among others.
