If you love photography and like to look at great photographs taken by talented people like Anthony Friedkin, Nick Brandt, LeRoy Grannis and Mona Kuhn then this is a must-attend event. Plus, with digital cameras selling so well and almost everyone and their dog now having some sort of camera, the photographs shown at the event can serve as creative inspiration and a worthy goal to work towards when trying to become a better photographer.

And really, who doesn't need some inspiration now and then?
