Curated by Adriana Teresa and Graham Letorney, the FotoVisura Grant Exhibition will be
presented at the new United Photo Industries Gallery in DUMBO, Brooklyn.
Curated by Adriana Teresa and Graham Letorney—The FotoVisura Grant Exhibition features a selection of thirty images by twenty members of the FotoVisura international photography community, who were recognized for their personal projects by a panel of renown editors and curators in either the 2010 or 2011 FotoVisura Grant competition.
FotoVisura is about community as much as photography. Together, we stand for respect, tolerance, awareness and compassion, as well as, the understanding that one can exercise his or her freedom of expression within a space that believes that we can co-exist and grow in the difference.
This exhibition is a testimony to the broad spectrum and high quality of personal projects produced by the members of the FotoVisura community. Using their own resources, each photographer has taken it upon themself to bring to light a story that they feel strongly about. Some expose and even risk their own life during the process, yet all have become a voice to many who do not have one.
FotoVisura Inc. is committed to supporting these photographers during the process.
