“In regards to craftsmanship, I’m interested in the full process of the work, from ideation to capture, from print production to final presentation. There are so many tools available to photographers and I’m encouraging those who think outside the viewfinder to submit their work. This show will be an extravaganza of sorts, celebrating the strongest voices of photo-imaging from across the country.” ~ Blue Mitchell, Juror
