“Best of Show” features a diverse collection of prize-winning work by 16 photographers. The work selected is international in scope from the United Kingdom, Italy, and the United States. The exhibition, running November 1-December 6, 2013, gives the public the opportunity to view the juried work featured in The Photo Review’s 2013 competition issue. The University of the Arts has a longstanding relationship with The Photo Review, an independent journal of photography founded in 1976.
