Black Box Gallery is excited to announce a Black and White juried group photo show. There is often a classic, nostalgic and dynamic translation to black and white photography. Black and White has an important tradition of luminous, well-crafted and thoughtfully composed imagery. Contemporary photographers are involved in this dialog of history and tradition, but with their own modern voice, visions and aesthetics of imagery. Black Box will be looking for a diversity of photographic works and ideas for this exciting exhibition!
