Where is my American Splendour in a world that is cloudy and gray?

This juried exhibition calls for photography that captures the beauty and splendor of the American spirit.  Despite the clouds that hang overhead, despite our present times of discomfort and wounded spirit, how can we look to photography as a release, pause, or escape? How can photography provide a sense of optimism towards the diversity of the American lansdscape, its people, cities, towns, families, architecture and natural beauty? How can photography lift us up?  American Splendour is a call for new photography that gives us hope towards something better.
