This February – March, Salt is proud to host Flash Forward in our gallery for the third year. The Magenta Foundation’s Flash Forward program is an annual competition that showcases the work being created by the very best emerging photographers from Canada, the UK and the United States. Every year, judges from each of the participating and international countries review the submitted work and identify those young people that they believe show great promise as professional fine art or documentary photographers.
The Flash Forward 2013 Group Show features a select cross-section chosen from the bodies of work featured in the competition catalog. The photography covers all genres from documentary to photojournalism and fine art studio practices, and shows how each of these young photographers are affected and influenced by their mentors, interests and choices of subject matter. The show pays tribute to the diversity of the annual program and its growing profile, offering evidence that these emerging photographers are on the cutting edge of the direction that photography will take in future years.
Salt is one of only two stops the exhibit will make in the US – don’t miss it!
