With so many photographic possibilities in film, optics, editing, and process, Photographers seem to be an incredibly diverse group of artists who fight against any unifying characteristic. But as you’ll see in this imaginative limb exhibit, the unity is there. The artists portrayed in this show treat the assortment of possibilities as if being handed the keys to the visual playground. Their creativity and visual instincts take flight in a delicious way. TPS promotes an inclusive approach to the medium, mixing a community of photographers who perceive the world with unique visions. From touching portraits (human and animal) to sublime landscapes, street photography and perfectly synchronized still lifes, this show presents a wide range of approaches and styles.
