The Altered Photograph

1 December, 2016 – 14 January, 2017

529 West 20th Street, 3rd Floor
New York, New York 10011


Whether “intervened” or not, all photographic images seem to exist in the land of make-believe, and perhaps—despite art’s finest efforts—reality is not a thing to capture but to be created. “Changed,” hence reaches its conceptual apex with Ellen Carey’s subject-less “Pull with Mixed and Off-Set Pods” (color positive and negative prints, 2011): non-representational photographs made with a large format Polaroid 20 x 24 camera.

A Matter of Memory:
Photography as Object in the Digital Age

22 October – 29 January, 2017

Exhibition preview, 21 October

George Eastman Museum
900 East Avenue
Rochester, NY  14607

Today, the majority of photographic images are recorded digitally and viewed on screens rather than exposed on film and printed. Photographs in the form of image-bearing sheets of paper have become increasingly scarce outside of the art world. Because personal and collective memories are so inextricably intertwined with photographs—the result of the medium’s saturation of everyday life for the past 177 years—the change in the production and dissemination of photographic images is altering society’s relationship to memory.

Featuring work by more than thirty artists, A Matter of Memory: Photography as Object in the Digital Age encourages us to consider the future of memory.

Chemistry: Explorations in Abstract Photography

21 May – 19 June, 2016

Garrison Art Center
23 Garrison's Landing
Garrison, NY  10524

Ellen Carey, Jill Enfield, Anne Arden McDonald, Amanda Means, Wendy Small and S. Gayle Stevens have spent many years experimenting with an astonishing number of photographic techniques. In this exhibition the common denominator is that the subject matter of the works is the process itself, unlike traditional photographic subject matter which is more narrative and/or documentary. Alternative methods developed by these artists over time allow them ways in which to create works that are strikingly varied and result in mysteries that are thought-provoking, asking the viewer to grapple with the question of what makes a photograph a photograph.
