Exhibition Dates: January 10 - February 21, 2004
The latest installment of the gallery’s annual thematic exhibition takes you directly to the scene of the crime.
From its inception, photography has played a controversial role as “the mirror with a memory”. The medium’s ability to capture, through a combination of light, lens and chemistry, elements of the real world onto photographic paper led to the simple conclusion that photographs tell the truth. Most photographers understand that the photographs they make are much too subjective to be anything but visual examples of things that they hold to be true. Nowhere is this distinction more confusing than in photography’s use as evidence.
