The FRESH Annual Summer Show, now in its 8th year, is produced and presented by the Klompching Gallery. Through an Open Call for submissions, up to five photographers are selected and curated into a group exhibition. A further ten photographers are highlighted as finalists.

The five exhibiting artists, are also shortlisted for the RHONDA WILSON AWARD, announced as a new initiative in 2017, in honor of Rhonda Wilson MBE (1953–2014).

What is FRESH looking for? We are looking for the very best examples of new contemporary fine art photography. We're looking for single bodies of work with a consistent vision and originality — photography that is FRESH!

Reflecting how photography is understood across different platforms, FRESH thoughtfully incorporates the three elements of display, publication and dissemination: an exhibition, a printed catalogue, and an online showcase.
