Yater's arresting images, Vision, and Dirty and Pure, are juried into the 2017 Click! Photography Festival's exhibition, Resist, Durham, NC
Juror: Michael Pannier - Southeast Center For Photography
“Wonderful things are happening in photography down south in the Carolinas. I recently flew to Durham, North Carolina to attend Click! Photography Festival and review portfolios. The festival is ten years old and has hit its stride in the last couple of years, attracting reviewers from some of the best galleries, publications, and museums in the country.
-Kat Kieran, Don’t Take Pictures - New York
“I still can’t quite fathom that October means that there will always be some extraordinary photographic richness right down the road somewhere, to be had just for the asking. History will thank you because it will understand this as a 'Paris in the ‘20s' moment."
-MJ Sharp, Center for Documentary Studies faculty, Duke University

The FENCE, the world's largest outdoor exhibition of photography, featured an entire section of local artists...
Click! presented our juried exhibition, "Resist", at the brand new Watts Gallery. We are pleased and proud of the work that we and our partners brought to this year's festival. - Click!
