This is a collaborative exhibition between RayKo Photo Center and the Center for Fine Art Photography in Ft. Collins, Colorado. Center Forward was juried by gallery directors, Hamidah Glasgow and Ann Jastrab. The exhibit brings together the visions of both curators and explores the current trends in contemporary photography. Featuring 42 artists from across the country and around the globe. Highlights include Noah David Bau’s portraits depicting young professional Muay Thai (Thai Boxing) fighters in Bangkok from his series “This is My Body,” Susan Barnett’s “Not in Your Face” alternative portrait series, and Brett Van Ort’s massive interactive “Minescape” pictures that initially just seem like sublime color landscapes, but indeed there are landmines or bombs buried within them. Brett will also be here signing copies of his newly published book of the same name.
