Our recommendations for the month of June!

A visit to your local galleries is fantastic way to get inspired and keep up with what fellow photographers are making. To help you do the same, we rounded up photo shows happening in the U.S., Europe and Asia to make sure you don’t miss the must-see exhibitions in these three hotspots. See a selection of exhibitions we are most excited about in June 2016.
