"Process, Manipulation and The Studio in Contemporary Photography"

Ross Sawyers (L)

Friday, March 11 - 9:00AM to 9:45AM
Summerlin D

This presentation will examine current trends that have led to the rapid increase in the number of photographers creating or constructing the subject matter they photograph. The rich explorations in materiality and fabrication by the photographers featured have produced a wealth of imagery that emphasizes process while making obvious to the viewer aspects of construction and manipulation. In this work the camera and other photographic apparatuses share top billing with a variety of other techniques allowing these photographers to broaden the discourse around contemporary photography to include process, material and intentionality and to question the nature of photographic representation.
