AMERICAN SPLENDOUR: NEW PHOTOGRAPHY
American Splendour: New Photography is a juried exhibition that called for photography that captures the beauty and splendor of the American spirit. Despite the clouds that hang overhead, despite our present times of discomfort and wounded spirit, how can we look to photography as a release, pause, or escape? How can photography provide a sense of optimism towards the diversity of the American landscape, its people, cities, towns, families, architecture and natural beauty? How can photography lift us up? American Splendour is intended to give us hope towards something better.
