THEME | Center Forward
Photography, perhaps more than any other medium, seems inextricably linked to an increasingly complex modern world constantly unfolding in new and unexpected ways. Its ability to capture our cultural changes, the environments we inhabit, and the thoughts we keep play a vital role in giving us greater insights into our world and ourselves. In the 2014 Center Forward exhibit, we are interested in exploring this unique quality of photography; therefore, the theme is open and all subject matter is welcome.
