TitleLooking at You: Intimate Portraiture
Discription

Since the birth of photography, its practitioners have fixed their lenses on other people (and on themselves) in an attempt to capture the intricacies and complexities of the human condition. From the highly orchestrated, to the off-the-cuff; the poetry of the turned back, to the power of a subject’s unwavering gaze; we’re inexplicably and irrevocably drawn to photographs of our fellow human beings. Show us your best portraiture that reflects what it means to see and to be seen.

"Looking at You: Intimate Portraiture" will consist of an online exhibition hosted on the PHOTO-EMPHASIS website, as well as a physical exhibition at Corridor Gallery at the Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of Georgia. Corridor is a brand new gallery at Lamar Dodd, and we’re very proud to say Looking at You will be its inaugural exhibition! The opening reception will take place September 7 during the Lamar Dodd’s Fall 2018 Art Party.

30 works by 30 artists will be exhibited online. 15 of those works will be chosen for the physical exhibition.
