The 85th annual Wilmington International Exhibition of Photography captures thousands as they look at the world in both black and white, and color—forming what is one of the country’s oldest camera club.

“It’s really an international effort,” said Langevin. “These are some of the best people in the world that are submitting and the photographs cover the gamut from portraits, to landscape, to creative art, wildlife. There is a little bit of everything.”

The exhibition has six photo sections of competition, three print sections, including large monochrome, large color, and small color, two photojournalism, including digital and print, and one digital open section.
