Photographers often cite the camera as a means or excuse to explore new places and meet new people. For some, it is a way to examine emotions, relationships, and ideas. For Undiscovered Territory, APG invites artists to present artwork from their own personal explorations. APG is open to a broad range of work that incorporates the lens or photographic process in a significant way, including manipulated and mixed processes.
