I'm a daily lurker on the list but don't often post... thought I'd post a general summary concerning the upcoming f295 Symposium on Lensless, Alternative and Adaptive Photographic Processes taking place in Pittsburgh, PA USA from May 28 - June 1, 2008 with lectures, workshops and round-table discussions. Complete information is available on the symposium website: http://www.f295.org/symposium2008/

The f295 symposium is an in-depth exploration of the many different & alternative ways in which we can make photographs, and a look at how contemporary culture shapes the choices we make. Itís the only event of its kind that exclusively features artists and photographers talking about their work and the ideas that shape what theyíre doing!
