Join us for a monthly gathering of photographers / photo-based artists who are interested in cultivating a photo community in Savannah. We aim to provide a forum for artists at all levels, digital or analog, to receive critical feedback. All who wish to provide a safe but challenging environment to grow with input from a group of peers are welcome.
PLEASE NOTE: The critiques for July & August will be dedicated specifically to working up to the Critique Group’s exhibition in September. Photographers participating in the group exhibition should be signing up ahead of time to these 2 sessions and bringing work to be considered for the exhibition.
*** To show your work, RSVP BEFORE CRITIQUE by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or post on the Facebook page for the event. We will ask at the beginning of critique if there are others with work who did not reserve a spot, and will limit our session to the first 6 people. Individuals who arrive late are not guaranteed a spot to show their work. Of course you do not have to show work to attend! ***
PRINTED WORK IS HIGHLY ENCOURAGED, however we do have a projector for digital work. There is no limit on prints, but 10-20 is a suggested amount for a productive conversation. Digital work should be limited to 20 images on a flash drive.
Our basic ground rules include:
1) While we understand that photography serves many different purposes, we approach it from the perspective of artists. This means we believe that there is no one correct way to create a photograph, so our conversations are not about right vs. wrong, or solely based on technique. Because of this, we anticipate that presenters
-- are providing a body of work united by an idea rather than a collection of unrelated images,
-- are willing to provide information about where they are trying to take the work so the group can frame their questions appropriately, and
-- are bringing work that is coming from a place of personal exploration and not solely commercial gain.
Feel free to attend critique a few times before showing work to help clarify these ideas, or reach out to us with questions.
2) We ask that you please keep your one-on-one conversations during critique to a minimum so that the group can give respectful attention to the person presenting their work.
3) *** To show your work, RSVP before critique by emailing us at email@example.com, or post on the Facebook page for the event.
