Plates to Pixels was formed in 2006 to promote the creation of photography-based fine art and was established by artists, for artists. The name “Plates to Pixels” suggests the evolution of photography from the archaic wet-plate process to the new digital format of pixels and includes everything in between. Our mission is to provide exhibition opportunities for emerging and established artists working in the photography arts with an emphasis on pairing antiquated processes and new digital media processes.
