Dates:

Location:

John A. and Helen P. Becker Gallery
The exhibition examines photography’s complex relationship to human vision. X-rays, solarizations, spirit photographs, veiled and hidden subjects...what can the camera reveal that the eye literally cannot see, and how can photographic tools be used to show us more than what might be depicted within the space of the photographic frame?
