Candid Photography Exhibit – Call To Artists

Exciting news! My wife Connie and I were selected by the Herberger Theater to be guest curators for an photography exhibit at the University Club of Phoenix. The deadline to submit is 07/31/2015. The exhibition will be October – November 2015 at the University Club. Formerly a private residence, University Club of Phoenix has maintained the beauty of a vintage 1920’s home. The club hosts breakfast meetings, luncheon programs, private dinners, weddings, seminars and holiday parties.


Candid Photography

The theme we selected for this exhibit is candid photography.

A candid photograph is a photograph captured through motion mostly, without creating a posed appearance. This is achieved by avoiding prior preparation of the subject and by either surprising the subject or by not distracting the subject during the process of taking photos. (1)

This exhibit, open only to photography is meant to display the opposite of today’s selfie culture. An example of this style may best be seen from the master of candid photography, Henri Cartier-Bresson, famous for the term, “The Decisive Moment”. This exhibit will feature works of photography only and is open to artists using photographic processes: analog or digital, color or black and white, alternative processes and mixed media. Giclees accepted.
