Photography For Social Change Accepted Into National Gallery Exhibit

by JT on November 16, 2011

Looks like a trip to Minnesota is in order!  Photography For Social Change was invited to be a featured artist in a national gallery exhibit titled “Off the Cuff: The Spontaneous and Unrehearsed.”  The photo above “Grounds For Divorce” was selected out of applicants from all over the country by Juror Madeline Yale.  Below is Madeline’s criteria for selection:

The images I selected for Off the Cuff: The Spontaneous and Unrehearsed demonstrated the complex and varied roles photography employs as a witness and an accomplice in seeing the world. They related to both the genres of street photography and performance art and collectively portray chance encounters, improvisations, and decisive moments in the height of action, and documents of occurrences. Without premeditation, the photographers in this exhibit have captured what arises – acting as the mediator between the photograph and events as they unfold.  Madeline Yale, November 2011

The exhibit will be held at the Mpls Photo Center 2nd floor Gallery from January 20th to February 26th.  Hope to see you there.  I’ll be the one hanging out with Minnesota’s very own Gordon Bombay.
