INSIGHT 6: The New Storytellers is now available

Volume 6 of INSIGHT magazine is now available. To increase the reach of our annual magazine, we're now offering volumes through HP Magcloud. You can download this issue free or help support our mission by purchasing a print copy for $10.

Contemporary still photographers fix on paper and other digital media what narrative and oral storytellers have done for centuries. In a single frame, they must convey a wealth of information for the viewer to understand the world presented. The four young artists included in this volume ask us to bring our own experience to their works and to explore each piece's symbolism. Get lost in the fleeting moment unraveling in front of our eyes, captured purposefully and engineered to make a lasting impression.

Volume 6 includes work by Brooke Shaden, Satomi Shirai, Kyle Thompson, and Jon Jacobsen. Each feature is complimented by written text that places each artist's work in context. Also included is an original poem "Itch" by David C. Ward to accompany one of Shirai's works.

Welcome to the re-launched Photomedia Center

We took the summer off from regular exhibitions to completely overhaul our site and migrate content over. It's been years since we've had a site-wide change as complete as this, and we're pleased to say that the changes are not only esthetic, but also increase functionality and ease of navigation. Be sure to check back on this "News" blog for the latest information on what's happening at the Center, as well as sign up for our email newsletter, and follow us on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter.

We've got an entirely new submissions and exhibitions process called Contemporary Imagemakers, designed to be more accessible to artists. We'll be regularly updating a blog about our permanent print collection, talking about the pieces we've acquired. And you can still access old favorites, in streamlined galleries of past shows.

There's a lot on the horizon for us this year, including Volume 6 of INSIGHT magazine later this year. Thanks for your participation in exhibiting and experiencing great art photography with us for nearly a decade.
