Joy and the Everyday

Juror: Jean Dykstra
Editor, Photograph Magazine

For this exhibition, the artists are presenting the ways in which they experience and capture the idea of joy through things that they see and do everyday. Perhaps it is an amazing view, a peaceful vista, a humorous street scene, or an extraordinary object or place that they cherish. Joy and the Everyday is defined as an emotion of great happiness caused by something exceptionally good or satisfying – a source that sparks pure delight. As photographers, we have all captured moments that make us laugh, feel festive and elated. Sometimes joy comes from a feeling of love or something that we value greatly.

Joy and the Everyday is on view from June 26 – July 31, 2023 in APG’s Maloof Gallery, and features prints from the award winners and a video presentation of all images selected for the exhibition.
