Strathmore Fine Art Presents
BUILDING BRIDGES, NOT FENCES
Artists explore journey from darkroom photography to advent of digital image-making;
reveal narratives that photojournalism creates about distant global cultures
NORTH BETHESDA, MD – With Building Bridges, Not Fences, Strathmore explores the technical and conceptual journey of photography from traditional to digital media, through the reinvention of image-making through modern technology. This exhibition also ignites conversation about the aesthetic bridge that photojournalism builds between cultures as masters of the medium transcend borders through their work. The exhibition will be on view in the Mansion at Strathmore from September 24, 2011 to November 5, 2011. The first floor follows photography from darkroom to digital image-making with traditional black and white photographs by Bruce Barnbaum, digital photographs from Dean Kessmann and innovative digital compositions by Bruce McKaig. The second floor galleries will feature the stirring artwork of Israeli photojournalists Shay Aloni and Ammar Younis, and Cubans Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons, Enrique de la Uz, Pedro Abascal and Nestor Hernandez.
