Ann Jastrab and Hamidah Glasgow collaboratively juried the Center Forward 12 exhibition. Ann is the Gallery Director at RayKo Photo Center located in the SOMA arts district in San Francisco and Hamidah is the Executive Director at The Center for Fine Art Photography. Both galleries endeavor to promote the art of photography. The images will be shown at The Center for Fine Art Photography in 2012 and at RayKo Photo Center in May 2013.
Photography, perhaps more than any other medium, seems inextricably linked to an increasingly complex modern world constantly unfolding in new and unexpected ways. Its ability to capture our cultural changes, the environments we inhabit, and the thoughts we keep play a vital role in giving us greater insights into our world and ourselves. The 2012 Center Forward exhibition explores our complex world.
