Whereas and Therefore...this is pretty cool.
Just Breathe is a one night only fine art photography event highlighting the work of a diverse group of emerging Southern artists. It is a unique dynamic and engaging viewing experience. The exhibition will be at the Greensboro Project Space on the evening of 27 October 2017.
The rhythms of Southern life, its ebb and flow, are the subject of Just Breathe. Each featured artist will explore the motif of breath: free expression, the passage of time and the cadence of life and culture. Just Breathe will include practicing artists, students and the self-taught, people from various cultural, ethnic and racial backgrounds, straight and LGBTQ artists—and varied photographic media: film, digital, alt processes, and more.

THE FENCE is an outdoor photography exhibition series with an annual audience of more than 3 million visitors.
Over the past 4 years, THE FENCE has consistently attracted exceptional work by talented photographers from around the world, giving us an opportunity to share these powerful photographic narratives with a diverse audience of millions of visitors annually, while providing photographers with a truly public platform and unexpected career opportunities.
For our 5th edition this year, we’re pleased to announce the addition of a $5,000 cash prize for the Jury’s Choice Winner and an additional outdoor exhibition venue in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Photographers of all levels are invited to submit work that fits under one or more of our 6 thematic categories: Home, Streets, People, Creatures, Nature, and Play.
Once submissions are completed, an international jury of photography professionals will be called upon to review and select 40 photographers whose submitted work exemplifies the essence of “community” across cultural boundaries and geographical lines.
The selected projects will be presented in a series of large-scale, curated, outdoor exhibitions across 5 cities in the United States: Brooklyn, Boston, Atlanta, Houston, and Santa Fe.
