The 2018 festival is the 14th annual event for Exposure, which, according to the event’s website, “seeks to expand awareness, to educate, inform, and delight.”

Over 25,000 attendees partake in the festival each year, and February’s calendar has a new gallery, workshop, or tour nearly every day of the month.

Budding photographers can have their portfolios examined by experts in the community for feedback and networking opportunities, though registration for this aspect of the festival requires registration and a fee of $63.

Other events include meet ups, walking tours, workshops, and, of course, more than a few gallery openings.

A highlight of the festival is THE FENCE, a travelling photography exhibit that will be located along the Peace Bridge and snake into West Eau Claire Park – yes, it’s that long.

THE FENCE has been previously featured in Brooklyn, Boston, Atlanta, Houston, Santa Fe, Durhan, and Denver, and is now coming to Calgary.
