Exhibition Details

Travel can mean both the journey and the destination, near or far. But rather than reiterating clichéd images, curious photographers focus their lens on details of a scene, or moments unfolding around them, bringing the local culture to life. Were you able to connect with people in your city, state, country, or a foreign land, even if you didn’t speak the language, by taking their photo? Have you ever captured a day-in-a-life scene that tells a story of tradition or human emotion? Did you find yourself in a stunning landscape far from home, and actually do it justice in a photo? Share your indelible travel memories.”
