Young New England Photographers is a peer-oriented and juried showcase of photographic work by recent graduates from educational institutions in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont. The purpose of YNEP is to curate and share exemplary photographic work by recent graduates to facilitate a dialogue and create a community within and outside of the demographic of the student population.

This group exhibition features artists from the Fall 2012 Call for Entries by recent graduates from educational institutions in New England. The exhibition will be accompanied by a short-run newsprint publication published by Aint-Bad Magazine, a quarterly printed publication that focuses on the work of emerging photographers. Aint-Bad supports a progressive community of artists from around the world in a printed publication and web-based forum.
