THEME | Center Forward
Photography, perhaps more than any other medium, seems inextricably linked to an increasingly complex modern world constantly unfolding in new and unexpected ways. Its ability to capture our cultural changes, the environments we inhabit, and the thoughts we keep play a vital role in giving us greater insights into our world and ourselves. In the 2013 Center Forward exhibit we are interested in exploring this unique quality of photography, therefore the theme is open and all subject matter is welcome.

Hamidah Glasgow is the Executive Director at The Center for Fine Art Photography. The Center has three galleries, a digital and traditional lab and host’s 17 exhibitions annually consisting of juried, curated and solo exhibi- tions. The Center features emerging and established artists from around the world and promotes individual artists work through our physical and online galleries, publications and various social media outlets including the Center’s blog, Perspectives. In addition, the Center’s programming features classes, workshops, lectures, residencies and a resource library.

With selection for this exhibition, featured artist’s work will be seen by an international audience of collectors, curators, art consultants and other advocates of fine art photography. Each participant will be included in the Center’s Main Gallery exhibition and Online Gallery exhibition. In order to be included in the online gallery or to receive and award, you must participate in the gallery exhibition.
HONORABLE MENTION AWARDS: 2 year membership and a three image submission to a call for entry at the Center.
