What is PhotoZone?
PhotoZone is a collection of diverse individuals interested in the craft of photography.

A wide variety of skills are valued which range from masters of silver print, Platinum/Palladium, gum bichromate, etc. to enthusiasts of digital production. Many kinds of work are welcome, including hand-colored, airbrush, 3-D, collage, HDR, portraiture, street photography, nature photography, abstract expression, mixed media, and the list goes on.

PhotoZone currently has approximately 40 members. New members are welcomed after work is juried by current members.

Some background info:

In 1988 a group of 18 photographers opened an exhibit in the old Midgley building on High St. in Eugene Oregon and the PhotoZone Gallery was born. Of the group's purpose a member wrote, "The primary requirement for membership is a dedication to photography as an expressive medium." A quarter century and 100+ exhibits later PhotoZone continues to provide a venue for fine art photography in Eugene. The group continues to exhibit in various locations and sponsors a juried show every July which is open only to non-members. Many photographic artists receive their first public exposure by entering PhotoZone's annual juried show.

The group did a portfolio exchange with it's own members
