The artists in this exhibition reflect on notions of paradise, idealism, and fantasy through a broad spectrum of photographic strategies. Together, the works here represent competing visual rhetoric spanning commercialism, irony, sincerity, observational and interpretative documentary, camp, appropriation, tableaux, personal narrative, and impartial photographic philosophies….
How can we modernize the way we think about photography? Not just in the conversations surrounding digital vs. analog––old vs. new––but creating an improved taxonomy around processes and ideas that are universal to the medium and art making at large? A more holistic approach to an ever-changing landscape?
