The Blanden Memorial Art Museum in Fort Dodge, Iowa, will host the “Analog It” juried film-based photography exhibit from January 4 until May 7, according to The Fort Dodge Messenger. The Fort Dodge/Kosovo Art Initiative, an international exchange between Fort Dodge and Iowa’s sister state, the Republic of Kosovo, is running the exhibit, with submissions received from fifteen photographers at anywhere from two to five images apiece. Hans Madsen, a reporter as well aa photographer for The Messenger, saw four of his five submissions selected, and says it doesn’t matter what kind of camera a photographer uses when shooting on film.
