Photography’s Back to the Future

Here is some information regarding an exhibition I am in curated by Catherine Evans of the Columbus Museum of Art. I am lifting most of this from the e -invite from Mary Gray.


Curated by Catherine Evans, the William and Sarah Ross Soter Curator of Photography at the Columbus Museum of Art,Photography’s Back to the Future showcases 10 contemporary artists who illustrate the variety and complexity of the medium by using everything from the earliest photographic processes to the latest digital technologies.
