> DESCRIPTION

The photograph is almost automatically understood for its ability to capture the world at large,
compressing whatever lies within range of the camera into a unified image; contained, continuous and
even. This exhibition presents a group of artists that utilize this static notion of the photographic image
not as a means to an end, but rather as a point of departure. Their works call attention to how
photographs (and pictures, more generally) are constructed and considered inside the studio and out
in the world.
