About the exhibition: 30 by 30—a thirty day, online group exhibition featuring 30 contemporary photographers worldwide selected from the FotoVisura Photo of the Day archive. The selection of work exemplifies the beauty and diversity that we believe coexist within the FotoVisura community.
Since the fall of 2010, FotoVisura.com—an international self-publishing platform and resource for art and documentary photography— celebrates the work of its members by selecting a “Photo of the Day” from the Public Archive. Featured on the Home Page, the goal is to celebrate an image taken by FotoVisura members’ who have taken it upon themselves to self-publish and share their personal projects, as well as their FotoVisura Profile. Each image reveals the myriad of personal projects created by students, alumni and emerging photographers from an international community to reveal what is next in photography today.
Curated by FotoVisura Associate, Alejandra Carles-Tolra, this exhibition will be online at The FotoVisura Pavilion from September 1st-30th, 2013.
