“the relationship between what we see and what we know is never settled.” John Berger
Photographers don't always present straightforward images of what they see. In this exhibition we examine how the evolving techniques of photographic manipulation have allowed photographers to create alternate realities, new identities, convey messages, and tell stories.
Co-curators Meghan Maloney and Wannita Makaroon explore the ways artist manipulate the photographic medium and how people understand images in our tech savvy society. Today’s audiences are aware of a photographer’s tools, Photoshop, collage, negative sandwiching, filters and more. How does this affect the relationship between what we see and what we know?
