Call for Entries: September Exhibit

“10” at Chicago Photography Center, September 6 – October 13, 2013

Curated by Gregory “Eddi” Jones

In celebration of Chicago Photography Center’s 10th anniversary we are hosting a juried exhibition around the theme of “10”.  A lot happens in 10 years, the passing of a decade, the evolution of an idea, growth and change.  What does 10 mean to you?  CPC is looking for traditional or non-traditional photography that creatively interprets the theme of “10” as the passage of time, activity, or a duration.

Curator by: Gregory “Eddi” Jones is a digital-based photographer and writer who grew up in Syracuse, and is currently based out of Rochester, NY. He received his B.F.A. from Rochester Institute of Technology, and will begin his graduate work at Visual Studies Workshop in the Fall of 2013.

Gregory’s writing and images are focused on the use of the digital medium to explore theories of visual language, constructed imagery, and classical photographic subject matter. Over the past 3 years, he has pursued photographic projects in Croatia, Bosnia, Paris, Beijing, Niagara Falls, and throughout various locations in the United States.

In June of 2012, Greg founded In the In-Between, a web-based photo-arts journal dedicated to the support and promotion of digital-imaging artists.
