Photography has never been more accessible than it is now, in the digital age. From high-end DSLRs to the most basic smart phones, there is a camera for every skill level and an unlimited number of ways to share the photos we take. This gives us many new creative options but also presents us with a new challenge: how do we distinguish ourselves as artists in an age where practically everyone is a photographer? How do we go against the grain in a world oversaturated with imagery? This show explores that theme and challenges artists to bring a unique eye to the people, places and events we see every day.
