Conceptual Photography Exhibition

Calling fine art photographers who
are pursuing higher ideals in the use of photography with unique experimentations, bold expressions and eye-catchinig installations. D'art Gallery is looking for work that takes fine art photography to new places.

Defy the laws of nature, catch the uncatchable, and make it fantastical.
The Gallery loves portraits of emotions, and the merging of nature and human
elements. Your images can be realistic or surreal, imaginative or quiet, creepy or comforting. Let us see what you’re up to.


Juror, Mark Sink, is a private art consultant, represents and curates local and
international cutting-edge fine art photography. Mark is a co-founder
of The Museum of Contemporary Art Denver, founder of the Month of
Photography Denver and The Big Picture street art projects and the
Denver Collage Club. His personal fine art photography is shown and
collected worldwide. @marksink
