Last night CLICK Photography Festival and the FENCE partnered to celebrate our region's winning photographers who placed amongst the top of the thousands of submitters to United Photo Industries' FENCE 2017:

Top 100 world-wide:
* Bryce Lankard * Chris Ogden * Gesche Wuerfel
* Joe Lipka * Leah Sobsey * Marthanna Yater
* Sarah Dale * Shawn Rocco * Warren Hicks
The fast-paced, engaging PechaKucha presentation style started out in Tokyo from Klein-Dytham Architecture and has expanded around the world. It's been used for work in progress to new and mature work, thoughts and ponderings, arts to tech, et al. Audiences enjoy them, whether photographers (of all skill levels) or creative-minded people of all ilks. Some of the winners might go in depth about their series shown on the FENCE; some may provide behind the scenes, "making of," inside scoops; some may creatively share their artistic process or inspirations; some may read a poem; who knows what others might do. Quick, targeted, oddly in-depth, and entertaining!
Afterward, enjoy some wine and cheese and attendees had the chance to ask the photographic artists what were they thinking.
This event was free and open to the public.
