“unseen” A Photographic Exhibition - Call for Entries


The exhibition seeks images that celebrate the photographer’s eye, discovering beauty, banality, and the everyday; images that make the unseen visible through light, exposure and the photographic frame are desired.

“I really believe there are things nobody would see if I didn’t photograph them.” – Diane Arbus

JURORS Lesley Krane and Niku Kashef
Lesley Krane grew up in Los Angeles. She earned an M.F.A. in Studio Art with a minor in Photography History at the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque in 1995. Committed to the practice of “slow photography” and the advantages of waiting, Lesley teaches her students to have a reverence and sensitivity for the medium. A member of the Freestyle Advisory Board of Photographic Professionals, she has exhibited and presented her work at local, national, and international venues. Lesley is a Professor of photography and the Associate Chair in the Department of Art at California State University, Northridge.

Niku Kashef is a visual artist and educator living and working in Los Angeles. Her process stems from the desire to question through collection and collaboration. Most of her works are paper-based: photographs, monoprints, and installations dealing with ideas of displacement and the uncanny. Niku has shown work locally, nationally and internationally. She serves on both local and national committees for the arts including the College Art Association’s Services for Artists committee and as President of the Southern California Women’s Caucus for Art. With her MFA in Visual Communication she is currently a Lecturer of photography at California State University, Northridge and a Participating Adjunct at Woodbury University.
