The gallery presents its annual Krappy Kamera® Exhibition, including the winners of the 2020 competition, exhibits by Soho Photo Gallery artists, and Chuck Baker's Old Light & Reconstruction. The competition originated at Soho Photo Gallery in 1998.
Brian Paul Clamp is this year's juror. He is the owner and director of ClampArt in Chelsea. The gallery specializes in modern and contemporary art with an emphasis on photography. 
"Selecting just forty-five photographs from well over eight hundred submissions is no easy feat, especially when presented with such a rich array of diverse imagery. Nonetheless, I have endeavored to assemble an impressive group of photographic prints by a wide range of artists employing cameras outfitted with 'lousy lenses.' The outstanding results are an inspiration."  --- Brian Paul Clamp

"When I was young, time piled up like coal to be shoveled into the burner, seemingly never ending. As I've grown older, time has changed into something to be hoarded. This work is about capturing old light and reconstructing moments in the hope of regaining control over time that, in reality, I never really had." --- Chuck Baker
