Look Again: A Selection of Photographs from the Permanent Collection
High Museum of Art
Featuring work by: Diane Arbus, Ilse Bing, William Eggleston, Ralph Eugene Meatyard

Exhibition: Sat, Aug 15, to Sun, Jan 10 2010

Mined from the High’s Permanent Collection, this exhibition investigates the intersection between reality and fiction within a photograph, through images created to subvert the viewer’s expectations. Photographers make numerous decisions when constructing a picture, utilizing the camera frame, the darkroom, light, shadows, focus, and motion to create an image that conveys complex ideas or emotions—a statement about who we are and how we live.

The unique vision of innovators like Ralph Eugene Meatyard, Diane Arbus, and William Eggleston opened up new realms of possibilities for photography as a medium of expression. Combining the inherently technical nature of photography with a spirit of experimentation, the artists featured in this exhibition have created pictures that challenge the conventional idea that photographs are straightforward purveyors of truth. Viewers are invited to unravel the complexities behind each image, and encouraged to take the time to “look again.”
