Exposed: Pervasive Influence seeks to examine the tyranny of the photograph. How does an image colonize perception? How are false realities created through different photo genres? This group show illuminates layers of perception by unmasking cultural appropriation, interrupting the fashion photographer’s narrative, decoding the anthropomorphization of animals through fantasy portraiture, and by confronting us with the effects of omnipresent advertising on our bodies; each work reveals new possibilities for reading images.
