An announcement from SlowExposures

Because of the Coronavirus Pandemic and our sincere wish to preserve the health of all of our photographers, volunteers, and friends, SlowExposures is regretfully announcing the postponement of our 2020 show until next year.

For those photographers who entered the 2020 show, our Jurors, Paula Tognarelli and Alan Rothschild are reviewing the entries and as soon as we have the results of their deliberations, we will let you know. The show that is selected by Paula and Alan will be presented in September 2021. We wanted the show to have the coverage and presentation that the work deserves. 

We hope you all stay safe and look forward to welcoming you to Pike County September 16 - 19, 2021.  We are planning the best SlowExposures ever and hope to see you then. 


Save the dates:  September 16 - 19, 2021

"The slow pacing of the four days facilitates a saturated adsorption. The genuineness of this community provides healing time from the rapid pace of another life that everyone brought with them but left checked at the county line."
