Curated by Adriana Teresa and Graham Letorney, the exhibition presents a selection of individual images by FotoVisura Members recognized by a panel of leading editors and curators in the FotoVisura SPOTLIGHT Grant for Outstanding Student Photography Projects.

Launched annually since 2010–The FotoVisura Grant aims to support personal photography projects and encourage the production and development of photography outside of the commercial realm. Divided into two categories–the Grant recognizes photographers as seen by their images, story, dedication and commitment of the photographer to the story or concept, as well as the extent that he or she is willing to go to bring about positive change in society.

This Exhibition is Sponsored by The Viso Lizardi Family.
The FotoVisura Grant is hosted on and funded by FotoVisura Inc.

Photography, as a mode of communication, has a particular quality of addressing us without speaking down to us. The distance between viewer and subject can be reconciled with the intimacy of studying and inspecting each detail of a photograph. This exhibition seeks to inspire dialogue & quiet conversations with the viewer, transcending cultural and political boundaries.

FotoVisura Inc in collaboration with United Photo Industries is delighted to present Dialogue & Quiet Conversations: Part II, a gallery exhibition on display at United Photo Industries Gallery. Curated by Sam Barzilay and Graham Letorney—this exhibition consists of 12 individual images selected by a panel of leading curators and editors from the top finalists of the most recent FotoVisura Grant.

Dialogue & Quiet Conversations is a two part exhibition consisting of a projection and a printed show. As part of the FotoVisura Pavilion sponsored by the Viso Lizardi Family, Dialogue & Quiet Conversations is produced by FotoVisura Inc.
