The Photographic Imaginary
Nine Approaches to Photography Today
Curated by Vincent Johnson
THE PHOTOGRAPHIC IMAGINARY
The title of the exhibition alludes to the question of what constitutes the photographic imaginary today.
The overarching theme of the photographic imaginary is essentially photography in its myriad manifestations from ideas of photography to conception and print.
This exhibition will explore several forms of the photographic imaginary, from the real to the unreal, from the dream to what appears to be unaltered and direct photographic truth.
The exhibition does not require or even ask for work of that speaks to any particular subject, as it is each artist’s individual contemporary vision is the subject of the exhibition as platform for photographic visions.
The exhibition takes on Matisse’s remark “Exactitude is not truth” as a challenge.
