Photographic images are deeply rooted in ones personal perspective and emotion. Whether an image is found or created and regardless of genre—be it landscape, still life, portraiture, nature, abstraction, photojournalism, self-portrait, or documentary, the story we express through our camera lens are personal narratives that are unique to every individual.
This exhibit will showcase a collection of diverse images that explore the photographer’s unique personal narrative of image making through the power of photography.
