Curated by Kelli Connell
Filter Photo is pleased to present OUTS, a group exhibition of photography curated by Kelli Connell.
For this exhibition, 70 photographers provide an image that didn’t fit into any of their projects, an OUT, but remained compelling for them nonetheless. This exhibition affords the opportunity for these outliers to be seen together, creating new visual relationships between seemingly disparate images made by some of the most prominent photographers working in the medium today. There is a corresponding publication published by Skylark Editions.
