Concepts 2024 – Conceptual and Abstract Photography

Capture the intangible, delve into the abstract, and unlock the world of conceptual photography! We invite members to submit their most compelling and innovative works for consideration in our annual conceptual and abstract photography exhibition, Concepts 2024. This exhibition aims to showcase the power of conceptual and abstract photography in pushing the boundaries of visual storytelling and challenging conventional perspectives.

The theme for this exhibition revolves around the fusion of imagination and creativity, transcending the confines of traditional photography. We encourage artists to explore the abstract, embrace the conceptual, and redefine the ordinary. Whether it’s a play of light and shadows, experimental techniques, or thought-provoking compositions, we welcome entries that provoke emotions and stimulate the intellect.

APG is honored to have as our esteemed juror, Brian Paul Clamp, Owner and Director of CLAMP gallery in New York.
