Photography – “the art or process of producing images by the action of radiant energy and especially light on a sensitive surface (as film or an optical sensor),” is a broad field, and, in the upcoming PHOTOGRAPHY NOW – THE ART OF SEEING juried exhibition, Summit Artspace seeks to explore the range of that field. Regional photographic artists who work with film and use traditional darkroom techniques, those whose images are recorded digitally and processed on a computer, and those who push the boundaries of the medium in new directions, are all invited to enter. The only exception is that instant photography cannot be accepted, due to a concurrent exhibition which focuses on that medium.
Works from traditional to experimental and from representational to abstract are equally welcome, as are images presented on paper, transparency, through projection, or in some other format. What will unify this exhibition is that each selected work will represent the intersection of personal creativity and engagement with some form of photographic technology in order to explore the art of seeing at this moment in time, whether the gaze is turned outward or inward.
