Photowork is an annual exhibition of contemporary photographs curated from photographers throughout the United States and jurored by leading curators, critics, and processionals in the field. Barrett is proud to welcome Name, Name, Name, and Name as this year's panelists. The theme of the show is reinvention, wherein artists provide a juxtaposition of traditional styles and cutting-edge practices in dynamic imagery. The show celebrates photography's role as fine art and prescient social commentary. Winners in the past have spanned the gamut of photographic output from small to large format cameras, pinhole cameras, silver gelatin prints, pigment prints, chromogenic prints, and everything in between. Cash prizes are awarded.
