International Photography Exhibition
Midwest Center for Photography / Deadline: 04/01/20
Consider what it means to explore and take photographs while examining a sense of place through aiming your camera simply at what you see and showcase your individual aesthetic voice. Taking photographs while out exploring, whether seeking a particular destination, or if the experience of adventure is the destination - as photographers we do this. Walkabout is an exhibition showcasing the banality of the everyday. Photographs submitted for exhibition can range from a detailed exploration of a particular location to a visual documentation of one's personal interaction with their surroundings. The act of observing our surroundings through capturing the visual qualities of a location portrays a sense of documenting one's experience. We approach many different ways of describing and documenting location, whether it is exterior or interior space, whether it is captured in detail or from a distance. We experience a sense of awareness from exploring a town or city on foot or driving through the landscape. The works presented in this free spirited exhibition will encompass what it means to simply examine a sense of place with the medium of photography. Selected artists will have their work featured in the exhibition and online.
