Light, Paper, Process: Reinventing Photography
At the J. Paul Getty Museum, Getty Center
April 14–September 6, 2015
At a time when digital technologies offer increasingly sophisticated options for producing, storing, and disseminating images, a number of artists have turned their attention to exploring the essence of photography, distilling it to its basic components of light-sensitive emulsions and chemical development. These artists may use handcoated or expired papers, archival negatives, or custom-built cameras, or they may eschew the use of a camera or film altogether. All employ a variety of darkroom techniques that shift our understanding of photography from a medium that accurately records the world to one that revels in the medium’s materials and process.
