Photography met the twenty-first century in a precarious position – more ubiquitous than at any point in its history, yet fundamentally less believable. Ranging from images exposed on film and printed in a darkroom to compositions constructed from multiple digital captures, these photographs subvert our assumptions about their subjects in surprising ways.

This exhibition has been extended through October 18, 2020, and is now free to all visitors. Free timed tickets are required to visit the Museum. Make your reservation today.
