The Florida Museum of Photographic Arts (FMoPA) is pleased to announce the opening of New Visions, FMoPA’s annual platform for emerging artists navigating contemporary aesthetic and cultural trends. New Visions 2015 features photographers Henthorne and Joseph Gamble and will run through August 31, 2015.

Henthorne’s black and white photographs examine intersections of earth and ocean, serving as both environmental documents and dreamy homages to nature verging on the surreal.

Also meditations on place, Joseph Gamble’s work explores ideas of location and the monolithic, oft maudlin and ironic vestiges of the now-defunct U.S. Space Program.

“We are thrilled to provide a space for these photographers to share their work with the Tampa art museum and Tampa photography communities and look forward to the interesting dialogues it will undoubtedly spark,” says Zora Carrier, FMoPA’s Executive Director.

The Florida Museum of Photographic Arts is one of fewer than ten museums dedicated exclusively to photography in the United States and one of two such museums located in the state of Florida. FMoPA seeks to enrich the lives of the citizens of the Tampa Bay area by continuing to provide rare, specialized access to the wonders of photography not only as an aesthetic form but also as a multi-faceted historical and contemporary document of our world through exhibitions, education, outreach programs, and local collaborations.

Admission: Free for members, $10 for not-yet members.
