Since 2007, the Society for Photographic Education (SPE) has been headquartered in Cleveland. This international organization is 50 years old, established as a go-to organization for those that teach photography at the college or graduate level, although these days members include those that teach on the high school level.

Having moved into the space a year ago, SPE debuted the gallery space with their first exhibition this past summer. SPE’s next and upcoming Cleveland exhibition features work curated from the society’s online member gallery and represents members from each of SPE’s regional chapters, international membership and its caucuses (LGBTQ, Multicultural, and Women’s), including photographers from across the Atlantic to right here in NEO and many places in between.

Executive Director Virginia Morrison oozes with excitement, “Some of the printing that is in this particular grouping is just exquisite…it takes my breath away. In curating this show, we took the work from our online member portfolios and we thought, ‘Now, this is something we want to showcase and put together in a show.’ Usually, we see these photos basically on our computer screen or thumbnail. There’s a huge difference in the viewers’ experience when looking at a screen of the work versus looking at an actual printed piece. In part of the show, we run the exhibiting artists’ online portfolios on a TV screen so people can see first digital images that were turning our heads. We then parlay that experience into the real in-person physical printed piece.”
