Through the Lens – A Group Exhibition

We've all heard the saying, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” A photograph captures a particular moment in time - for eternity.

With technology, the art of photography has grown in ways we never imagined. We are seeking unique photographic works from artists like you.

Las Laguna Gallery is now accepting submissions of all types of photography, including but not limited to, traditional film, iPhone, polaroid, digital, etc. There are no restrictions on content or style, photographs on any medium will be considered.
