"Natural Selection" features the work of 16 emerging photographers from around the globe, and highlights the raw power of their vision as they address fears, insecurities, relationships, mourning, and personal turmoil. The exhibition, curated by NYC gallerist and educator Michael Foley, is on view February 20 through February 28 at the Calumet Photographic Gallery, 22 West 22nd Street in Manhattan. The opening reception will be on February 20 from 5:30pm until 7:30pm. Admission is free and open to the public.

In "Natural Selection," the artists explore the surface and subsurface of the New York subway system, its neighborhoods, music, and nightlife; envision humanity’s impact on the environment, capture urban destruction in China, and the life of a fisherman in Trinidad and Tobago; and address how we perceive ourselves through editorial photography, fine-art compositing, and surreal and deeply personal medical images. NATURAL SELECTION is a brave show that is born out of personal unrest and a yearning for change and evolution, while honoring common vulnerability and morality.
