An international photography exhibition, "The Art of Photography Show," recently selected the work of Brigham Young University photography professor Paul Adams to be included in its 2008 show.
The Art of Photography Show will open April 25 and run through May 23 at San Diego’s Lyceum Theatre Gallery. Approximately 20,000 people are expected to view the show during its four-week run. For this juried competition, an unprecedented 12,200 entries were submitted by artists representing 46 countries.
"Though we are very excited to receive a record-breaking number of entries this year, the thing which really thrills us is the overall caliber of the photography,” said Steven Churchill, curator and founder of the event. “The work is fantastic, including images from many significant and well-known photographic artists."
Over his 20-year career, Adams has seen his work displayed both nationally and internationally and his photographs are included in several permanent collections, including the Nora Eccles Museum of Fine Art, Chattahoochee Valley Art Museum, the Tenba Corporation, The Chicago Institute of Art and the BYU Museum of Art.
Adams has been a professor of photography at BYU since 2002. Before coming to BYU, he taught photography at Utah State University and Florida Keys Community College. He also lived in Europe as a Fulbright scholar and taught photography in northern England.
