People and Places—Photography Reconnected

Friday, November 18 – Saturday, January 7, 2023

Reception: December 2, First Friday, 6-8pm

During the pandemic lockdown many photographers reconnected with time-honored subjects such as portraits and landscapes in a different way than before. It was a time when many photographers found refuge in nature and created images of places that they had forgotten or never seen before. Stuck at home, others reconnected with loved ones and themselves, bringing new life into portraits and self-portraits by going beyond documentation and inviting reflection. For many artists, the pandemic affected how they saw their subject matter. Artists are invited to submit portrait, self-portrait, and landscape photographs that were taken from March 2020 on, especially those taken during the lockdown.
