Share and discuss documentary projects 

If you are looking for feedback on your documentary work or a place to meet with others involved with or interested in documentary photography, join SDN, Digital Silver Imaging, and Blue Earth Alliance for Documentary Matters. This is a free and open meeting for anyone interested in presenting, viewing, or discussing documentary photography.

You don't need to be a professional, expert, or established--you just need to be committed to the documentary form and committed to learning from feedback from others. And you don't need to be a photographer or presenting your work to attend. Everyone is invited to join us, look, listen, and comment. Still photography, multimedia, and video encouraged. Documentary required.  
If you apply to present work, we will review your submission and get back to you prior to the evening.
