Perspectives is an ideal born out of using the global language of photography to address social and political issues that are relevant to each participating photographer. The object of the exhibition is to provoke thought, while creating a space where artists can come together in the spirit of unity, and a common love for photography.
The photographers in this exhibition come from various walks of life: one is a U.S. Army veteran who served two combat tours in Iraq and uses photography to ease his personal struggle with post traumatic stress, another is a formerly incarcerated prisoner who taught himself photography while he was confined in a federal prison, and another is an active duty police officer from Oakland, California, who has a passion for image making; he uses his lens to document humanity.
All of the photographers in this exhibition are dedicated to their craft and they are active on social media, which they use as a platform to share their vision with a global audience.
United Photo Industries (UPI) is a New York based nonprofit organization that works to promote a wider understanding of, and increased access to, the art of photography.
Since its founding in 2011, UPI has rapidly solidified its position in the public art landscape by continuing to showcase thought-provoking, challenging, and exceptional photography from across the globe. In its first seven years, UPI has presented the work of more than 2,500 visual artists in gallery exhibitions and public art installations worldwide.
