ABOUT THE EXHIBIT
While contemporary photographic practice has recently moved toward the the constructed image, this show celebrates five photographers who take pictures. Theirs remains "a process based not on synthesis but on selection," as John Szarkowski wrote in 1966. Embracing photography’s essential characteristics, they ask the world to reveal itself and to represent something more, building a web of meaning through relationship and metaphor.
