Professional Women Photographers is presenting Primarily Color, an exhibition highlighting the distinctive qualities of color within a smaller image format.
What first grabs your attention in the images from PWP’s Primarily Color is exactly that - color. Light, shadow, texture, content and composition all let Color take the driver’s seat. Through artful alteration, exaggeration or isolation, it is color that takes center stage.

This exhibition is a small works show. The smaller image insists that the viewer get up close and personal with the photograph. This reveals the tiniest detail while at the same time allowing the entire image to be perceived in a single view.
Primarily Color is small in physicality and large in theme, its expression revealing the varied aesthetics of its members.
