(Programming Innovations for Click)

(Click! Note: all of these winners have alternative plans if we are not allowed to gather in large groups in October)

Susan Patrice: The Six Feet project.

Will Crooks

Six Feet is a collaborative photography project that inspires photographers to create personal and intimate images from within this time of social distancing and confinement. They host thematic photography forums and facilitated practice groups free of charge to all photographers committed to making work during the COVID-19 pandemic. The PIC grant will support the Documentary Photography Forum Series and Practice Group and The PIC Grant will culminate in a curated exhibition of work from the Six Feet project at the Durham Arts Council.




John Allen: Big Camera Trailer

The Big Camera is a 10×6’ enclosed trailer that is converted into a camera obscura. The Big Camera focuses on bringing photographic education to settings in which traditional/analog photography may no longer be included in curricula, to marginalized groups and to adults and children who have an interest in optics, science, art history. It makes accessible theories of photography to the broadest possible audience. The Camera will make appearances at select locations during Click, demonstrate the camera, display large scale analog negatives and create analog images on site with festival participants. The Big Camera is supported by A1LabArts
