Process as Interpretation seeks to sharpen the viewer’s awareness through consideration of nearly identical but subtly different images.
The exhibition presents seven pairs of images from the CCA collection. Although these pairs are printed from the same negative, careful comparison of the subtleties of cropping, scale, tonal gradations, and medium reveal the printing and presentation concerns of the photographers, which in turn influence the meaning of the images. Each pair has been chosen to raise an issue in the history of architectural photography. The exhibition presents works by nineteenth-century, early twentieth–century, and contemporary photographers, including Edouard Baldus, Linnaeus Tripe, the Bisson frères, Thomas Annan, Frederick Evans, Bernice Abbott, and Clara Gutsche.
