WPA ArtFile Online / Photography Call

CALL FOR ENTRIES: As part of FotoWeek DC 2009, WPA will present an exhibition of photography selected exclusively from the ArtFile Online (AFO) by the acclaimed documentary photographer, Jim Hubbard.

For this exhibition, Hubbard invites photographers to submit works that are relative to today's economic hardships.

...This new exhibition will explore the human drama and its various visual forms against the backdrop of the current and former economic meltdowns that have left millions of our fellow Americans outside the American dream and framed through the lens. -Jim Hubbard
