AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 PRINTS
A chapter in the “New History of Photography’ by Michel Frizot is titled; ‘Around the World – Explorers, travelers + tourists.’ It is from this heading that the inspiration grew to take a journey around the globe and showcase artist’s work from different countries. This will be a journey of discoveries to open our horizons to photographers working in different parts of the world.
Every month or so, we will travel virtually to a new country, and showcase work from four artists from that region. We will invite artists from each ‘stop’ on our journey to submit one portfolio, and to share a bit about themselves and what it is like to work in their country.
The total collection will not exceed 80 prints, so the first ‘tour’ will be to approximately twenty countries. We hope to create a limited edition print with each artist that will be available to purchase through Lúz Gallery, in Victoria B.C. and online at www.luzgallery.com
It is our hope that by taking this journey around the world that we can expand our knowledge of photographers working across the globe, and introduce their work to a wider audience of buyers, collectors and admirers.
We have twenty countries that we have selected for our journey around the world.
Our first stop, will be in the tradition of the book, the United Kingdom!
Other countries selected for our first ‘tour’ include:
Poland, Belgium, India, Morocco, Argentina, New Zealand, Canada, USA, Turkey, Russia, Iceland, South Africa, Madagascar, Thailand, Vietnam, Japan, Cuba, Mexico, Venezuela
Artists will be selected through an open submission process
