DESCRIPTION

Adjacent to the Aldrich works will be a small exhibition introducing the collaborative photo collages of Stephen Aldrich and Barret Oliver titled "Photo-Synthesis". The two have been working together since 2007 as a result of their shared interest in 19th century imagery and photographic techniques. The collaboration begins with albumen prints created by Oliver, which are then sliced and reassembled by Aldrich. Oliver describes their work as an exploration into "how the history of images is understood by the contemporary eye and how the fragmentary nature of photographs affects the way we see."
