What Is a Photograph? explores the range of creative experimentation that has occurred in photography since the 1970s. The show brings together 21 emerging and established artists who have reconsidered and sought to reinvent the role of light, color, composition, materiality, and the subject in the art of photography. For example, German artist Marco Breuer attempts to answer the question: What is a photograph? Breuer’s experimental approach eschews the camera itself. Instead, he strips photography to its essential materiality, presenting works created by manipulating the surface of light-sensitive photographic paper such as in Spin (C-813), 2008 (at left).
