Call for Submissions Darkroom Gallery CultureCulture: a word with many shades of meaning and numerous subtle connotations. To the anthropologist, culture defines the social, behavioral, material, and spiritual characteristics of distinct groups of people such as tribes, ethnic groups, and nations, as well as subgroups within those larger entities.

Darkroom Gallery has created this exhibition called Culture as a challenge to you, the photographer, to look around at the cultural groups you encounter. If you’re a world traveler, that’s fine, but even if you never venture far there are opportunities to depict the differing cultures of your own community, state, and nation. Think creatively, avoid stereotypes, and bring us your world.
