Where in the World? People, Places and Events

MPC_GreyLogo Photography likes to break out of the studio and inhabit the world. Few things artists do are as immediately engaged with the dynamics of life and the environment as photography. Cameras have been on the bottom of the ocean and on the surface of the moon.

They’ve seen everything, from weddings to wars, and they’ve augmented almost every attempt to understand life and our place in it. Where in the World: People, Places and Events will bring together a diverse group of photographers that interrogate the individuals, environments, and actions that comprise our universe.

Accepted Images: All images selected by juror will be exhibited throughout the Mpls Photo Center Galleries and published in a full color Exhibit Book for purchase.

On Exhibit: October 7th thru November 27th

Opening Reception: October 7th, 7:00 to 10:00 PM, Mpls Photo Center 1st & 2nd Floor Galleries

Results Announced: August 2nd, 2011

Acceptance: All entrants will receive an e-mail notification. Accepted images will be posted on the Mpls Photo Center’s website along with instructions for gallery presentation.
