But as you’ll see in this imaginative Members’ Exhibition, the unity is there. The artists represented in this show treat the assortment of possibilities like they were handed the keys to the visual playground. Their creativity and visual instincts take flight in delicious ways. TPS fosters an inclusive approach to the medium, blending a community of photographers who perceive the world with unique visions. From touching portraits (both human and animal), to sublime landscapes, to perfectly timed street photography and still lifes, this show presents a diverse spectrum of approaches and styles. You’ll witness the joining together of talented photographers capturing the essence of their subjects, leaving us inspired and intrigued — a rewarding outcome for a Members’ Exhibition.
