Photography in the Nabe

Just received word on TWO photography events presented by local artists in the area: 1. Fort Greene Photography Org:


On display will be a variety of photographic interpretations of how humans relate to each other and the environment. Images will showcase the talent of these artists by presenting images that are imaginative, emotional, as well as thought provoking. The dedication demonstrated by the photographers in this exhibit continues to show that FPGO is one of the premier community based artists organizations. Fort Greene Photography Organization is a photography-inspired membership organization that was founded in January of 2001. With a membership of thirty individuals, FGPO’s mission is to advance public interest in photography, to expose the public to the works of emerging photographers through exhibitions and other events, and to provide emerging photographers with a forum to expose their work to the public. FGPO aims to organize, sponsor, and present exhibitions, forums, lectures and discussions related to photography in order to foster a greater appreciation and understanding of photography by the general public to make it accessible to all.
