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 will have a ticket fee. $10 general public adults; $5 college students with ID; free for Joslyn members and youth ages 17 and younger.
