Decagon Gallery is proud to announce its second annual OPENINGS exhibition. All photographers over 18 are invited to submit their photographs to this online exhibition.


The theme of "Openings" can be interpreted in various ways. Photographs that relate to this theme may showcase physical openings such as doorways, windows, or tunnels, or metaphorical openings such as opportunities, beginnings, or breakthroughs. 


Photographers can also explore the idea of openings in a more abstract manner, such as through the use of light and shadow, negative space, or unconventional angles.
