Each February Exposure (a registered non-profit established in 2004 by the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies to encourage the broader community to consciously examine, question, and appreciate the medium of photography) provides the Exposure Photo Fest a festival focused on exhibiting a diversity of photographic imagery.
Anyone willing to create a meaningful photography-based program, exhibit, or event is welcome. To date, Exposure has united educators, independent artists, and public and private galleries, aided by the generous support of businesses, media partners, and government. Exposure also programs lectures, panel discussions, and workshops to encourage more thoughtful image making by practicing photographers and to raise important questions about photography.
For the past 10 years, the festival has been focused exclusively on Calgary, Banff and Canmore but this year Exposure Photo Fest is expanding across Alberta for its next edition in February 2015. Submissions for the month-long festival are now being sought from artists and galleries across the province.
