    This is the sixth year of this major photographic exhibition. Our mission for this annual project is to create an ideal forum for photographers to exhibit and sell their work, reaching our very large community of art collectors, affluent individuals, corporate heads, civic leaders and very influential people who make up the Art of Photography Show audience. We will be pursuing a vigorous marketing and publicity campaign, to bring maximum media attention to the artists who are juried into the exhibition. Our great love of this art form (and being photographic artists ourselves) prompts us to ‘pull out all of the stops’ in order to showcase a truly excellent presentation of photographic art, to elevate and promote this art form, and to provide substantial benefits to the exhibiting artists.

    Through the Lens: Creating Santa Fe full length interviews available to watch!

    From a Through the Lens e-blast:

    “Links to the full-length interviews from Through the Lens are posted individually to each web-length interview on the following website:

    Through the Lens: Creating Santa Fe is a visual history of Santa Fe, New Mexico — as it celebrates its 400th anniversary as the oldest capital city in North America. These images, selected from the collection of the Photo Archives at the Palace of the Governors and through studio visits with contemporary photographers, illuminate the multiple meanings of place.

    Through the Lens: Creating Santa Fe is a visual record of transformation. The exhibition is divided into three broad and overlapping themes: Place, Identity, and History. While some of the photographs provide a broad perspective on cultural and social transformation, the exhibition also contains photographs that reveal a more intimate side of the city’s history.”
