We are having an exhibition and party to celebrate the dedicated and diverse community of documentary photographers that make up the SDN community. We wouldn’t exist without you! Our public debut was at PDN Photo Plus Expo in 2008 where we presented the SDN website with six live exhibits. Today–ten years later– we have presented more than 3,000 documentary exhibits on the website by 2,000 photographers from across the globe.
This flagship event will be a celebration party that will include live music, video, exhibitions, and an acknowledgement of the global documentary community that has made SDN possible.
