The Edge of Vision: Abstraction in Contemporary  Photography

September 4 – November 28, 2010

The Edge of Vision: Abstraction in Contemporary Photography showcases the work of more than twenty photographers who base their practice in some form of abstraction. The exhibition explores various aspects of the photographic experience, including the chemistry of traditional photography, the mediation of lenses, the direct capture of light without a camera, digital sampling of found images, radical cropping, and deliberate destabilizations of photographic reference.
