Over the past decade, a group of young photographers from North America have begun to take photography in new directions, largely as a reaction to the rise of the ubiquitous, dematerialized digital images that form the backbone of contemporary visual experience. The work of these artists is diverse, but they share an investment in placing photography into conversation with other artistic mediums—particularly painting and sculpture—to create hybrid works that are only part picture. In the process of forming this new photographic narrative, these artists have also provoked a re-examination of recent photographic history, which has lent new weight to the work of photographers the pervious generation, who have now emerged as the current moment’s most influential predecessors. In this exhibition, the work of these forerunners will be shown together with some of the most significant young photographers of the current moment, providing a provisional picture of the state of photography today.
