Showcasing the talents of local photographers, From Behind the Lens offers a fresh visual experience with local scenes, creative compositions, and unexpected views.

As creative thinkers, these artists are deeply engaged with both local surroundings and the broader world. They have captured images that unlock the viewer’s imagination, allowing them to find the stories within the photographs.

The unique combination of a camera lens and each photographer’s intuitive eye brings their artistic vision to life.
