Photography bonanza: Inspired by the Lens is a wonderful (and free) lineup of exhibits, workshops, and artist talks that showcase the work of artists, educators, and photographers who use the lens as a stimulus for creating meaningful imagery in their professional practices. Click here to view an online brochure for event listings in September and October. The program was created by the Triangle Photography Consortium—an affiliation of museums, galleries, and organizations including the Center for Documentary Studies.
