Curators Laura Moya and Laura Valenti Jelen are putting together an exhibition for this spring that showcases images that photographers made when they were children. “Early Works” will show in April at Newspace Center for Photography in Oregon during Portland Photo Month, and at RayKo Photo Center in San Francisco in Fall 2013.

There is no entry fee to submit work. The deadline is February 4th, 2013.
