chateaugallery Americana

Americana is an exhibition depicting the objects, people, places, history, and folklore of the United States of America. The idea of Americana is subjective and often influenced by nostalgia or stereotypes of American culture. The ethos or guiding beliefs and ideals which have come to represent America, such as freedom and The American Dream, are central to the concept. For better or worse, from amber waves of grain, an apple pie, baseball, cars, drugs, football, guns, and purple mountains’ majesty, how does your work portray the melting pot of a paradox known as the United States of America?

Americana is an international juried group exhibition open to photographers ages 18 years and older. All black and white, color, conventional, non-traditional photographic, and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.
