Since its inception in 1826, photography has had a strained relationship with fine art, which to this day remains tenuous. This is particularly true in Texas, where art is "overshadowed by both an abiding preference for realistic or Impressionist-style art and the state's self-perpetuating lore." In fact, Texas art-historical scholarship often excludes the medium in its entirety, to say nothing of acknowledging emerging trends. This presentation will examine this problematic relationship and explore a selection of Texas photographers that push against this tradition by blurring boundaries around the medium.
