Snappy - the Photography Exposed mascotI’m excited to announce the opening of the Photography Exposed – Interactive Photography Exhibit, at Kohl Gallery in Chestertown, MD. This exhibit uses a unique approach of providing an interactive multimedia experience by way of QR Code (quick response bar codes) in addition to the name of the artist and title.

Guests can use their iPhone, Android phone, latest gen iPod (with camera), or similar device to scan these QR Codes, and immediately pull up text of the artists description and camera settings, voiceover with video describing the making of the photograph, or in some cases, behind the scenes video or even screen casts showing the event where the photo was made, or any post processing that might have been done in Photoshop to achieve the final result.

The exhibit with 50 photos will remain up through February 27, 2011. The exhibit is just outside the Kohl Gallery in the Gibson Performing Arts Building on the beautiful Washington College campus, located at 300 Washington Ave, Chestertown, MD 21620.
