About LightBox Photographic Gallery:
LightBox Photographic Gallery was established in June 2009 to provide a center for the promotion of creative and alternative photography on the North Coast of Oregon. LightBox provides a venue where photographic artists may exhibit their work, share their vision, and inspire other photographers and individuals. LightBox strives to exhibit a diversity of photographic styles and processes, to educate in these techniques and methods, and to influence the community in the recognition of photography as fine art. LightBox encourages the continued use of film, traditional photographic methods, historical alternative processes and seeks to discover and recognize the finest works in digital photography. LightBox serves as a gathering place for photographers and individuals who appreciate fine photography. We’ve enjoyed each and every day meeting those who come into the gallery and to have experienced and shared the vision of so many unique individual artists.
