Manipulated
Gallery See - SCAD Atlanta
Featuring work by: Kim Anno, Radcliffe Bailey, Christopher Bucklow, Chuck Close, Dan Estabrook, Abelardo Morell, Richard Mosse, Mariah Robertson, Alison Rossiter, V. Elizabeth Turk

Exhibition: Tue, Sep 3, to Fri, Dec 27 2013

"Manipulated" features the innovative work of 10 contemporary artists who use experimental and often alternative studio and darkroom processes to expand the expressive possibilities and structure of making photographs.

As digital cameras have steadily replaced film over the past decade, Photoshop and other editing tools have made photograph "processing" a largely computer-aided activity devoid of direct manipulation by the artist’s hand. The recent revival of more labor-intensive traditional and avant-garde techniques, such as camera obscura, photograms, silver gelatin and Van Dyke prints, attests to an energized state of expression in contemporary photography and its creative potential to merge with drawing, collage, painting and installation.

The artists in "Manipulated" explore this fertile new ground in image making and, in the process, are directly influencing the future direction of conceptual photography.

Exhibition curated by Alexandra Sachs, Assistant Curator, SCAD Atlanta.
