4x5 Photo Fest

While the name is a bit of an ode to the bygone days when a photo was a thing that really didn’t exist until you got it developed (or developed it yourself, like a boss), the 4x5 Photo Fest is actually quite an innovative one-day affair meant to showcase budding and established photographers in the SA/ATX area, while fostering a sense of collaboration and community. The website elaborates on this mission: “Through collaborations with photographers, journalists educators, and businesses, we are specifically [seeking] to heighten the rich and diverse photography community in the San Antonio and Austin corridor.” The extensive one-day gathering includes a talk and book signing with Dan Winters, the exhibit "By The Olive Trees" (a collaboration with Haus Collective), a "Building Relationships in the Editorial World" panel discussion with Leslie Baldwin (Texas Monthly), Jenn Hair (San Antonio Magazine and Austin Monthly), Chuck Kerr (Variety) and Chris Skiles (Academy Sports & Outdoors), and a curated 4x5 Photo Fair. With submissions accepted until just last week, it is evident the event’s creative directors — Josh Huskin, Scott Ball and Shannon Gowen — took extra care to be as inclusive as possible. Whether you are a student of photography looking to network and learn, an old hand looking for new ideas, or simply a fan of excellent photo art, the 4x5 Photo Fest is a stop you’ll want to make this Saturday.
