Want the chance to shoot with the legendary Polaroid 20 x 24 inch camera? This is your last chance!
The CLICK! Triangle Photography Festival launches today in North Carolina. With over 70 curated events taking place throughout the month of October in Durham, Raleigh and Chapel Hill, North Carolina, the festival is one of the largest in the country. Now in its fifth year of operation, photography is such a hit in North Carolina that state governor Roy Cooper recently declared October the official "Month of Photography" for the state.
The festival is partnered with many organizations in the community: Duke University, UNC, NC Museum of art, just to name a few. The festival starts off the month with Openings, Tours and Talks, but the core "Click! 120" big Opening is on Oct. 4th with the award winning documentary artist Louie Palu.
Several industry heavyweights will be present in the festival, including Anne Wilkes Tucker (elected as “America’s Best Curator” by Time Magazine) and Richard McCabe (Curator of Photography, Ogden Museum of Southern Art). In addition, festival attendees can reserve time to make photographs with the "Mythical Beast" - the 20x24 Polaroid camera. As film for this camera is no longer being produced, this is one of the last opportunities to use this incredible camera!
You'll also be able to spend some time strolling along "The Fence" which is the largest outdoor photography exhibit in the world. Sounds like a good way to take in some crisp fall air while indulging your creative inspiration!
