Student Exhibit: Street Stories

Viewpoint Photographic Art Center invites all college and high school students of photography to submit photographs for an exhibit in the Viewpoint Step Up Gallery. This exhibit, titled Street Stories, will run from May 9 through June 3, 2017.

Street Photography is all about telling a story. “The decisive moment” was a phrase coined by Henri Cartier-Bresson, one of the earliest practitioners of street photography. “The decisive moment” is where everything comes together in a perfect moment, and you hit the shutter. The essence of street photography is about documenting everyday life and society on the streets.

Picturing the Parkway (Call for Entries)

Picturing the Parkway: Celebrating the American River Parkway in Photographs

Considered the blueprint for urban parks across the U.S., the 4,900-acre American River Parkway extends along the Lower American River for 23 miles, from Folsom Dam to Discovery Park at the confluence with the Sacramento River. Combining conservation with scenic beauty, abundant wildlife, and a wide range of recreational opportunities, the Parkway hosts more than 5 million visitors annually. The Parkway also provides a wealth of photographic opportunities in all seasons of the year.

To celebrate this "jewel of the Sacramento region", Viewpoint Photographic Art Center is planning a major photographic exhibit in the autumn of 2017. Entitled Picturing the Parkway: Celebrating the American River Parkway in Photographs, the exhibit will feature a juried selection of photographs made within the American River Parkway. The exhibit is open to all photographers and all photographic techniques.

Viewpoint is announcing this open exhibition more than a year in advance to encourage all interested photographers to explore the richness of the American River Parkway in all seasons and weathers. So get out there and start making pictures!
