> DESCRIPTION

This exhibition, comprised of over 100 works from across the history of the photographic medium and drawn from North Carolina collections, reveals how photographers use techniques to persuade us of their vision. Real understanding of photographic media suffers from the long-standing myth that the camera is an “innocent eye” that transparently records an image of the world as if through an open window. Some of the power of photography comes precisely from faith in this myth, which has been extremely useful in journalism, courtrooms, television, and on the internet.
