Photographers are continually searching for new ways of expressing their ideas through the medium.
Often what is seen in exhibitions is the result of many years of experiment, but this show invites the exhibitors to go beyond their comfort zone and exhibit only very recent, explorative images.
By challenging photographers to take new subjects, experiment with new approaches, techniques and processes, the show offers an insight into works which are still going through the various stages of refinement, reworking and fine tuning.
Each photographer has gone through an angst-ridden and harrowing time in selecting and submitting their images to the Public gaze, but feel that through their choices they are moving on their own creative practice.
