Online registration for SPE's 2014 National Conference has ended. A limited number of tickets will be available at the conference site beginning March 6th.

In an age of interconnectedness, photographers are no longer solitary practitioners peering at the world through the singular eye of the viewfinder. Rather, photography is positioned at the heart of the contemporary art discourse, establishing relationships with a broad array of ideas and media. Photographers are reaching outside of themselves more than at any point in history, to collaborate with other artists and writers, expand international relationships, engage with and empower communities, organize into teams and collectives, hybridize across media and materials, and build online resource groups and community non-profit organizations to facilitate their ideas. This conference illuminates this new paradigm and celebrates the spirit of cooperation and social linkages. Join us in Baltimore for the 51st gathering of SPE and a celebration of the power of community and social exchange to propel new thinking in photographic practice.
