STILL Photography: Selections from the Permanent Collection

December 07, 2019 to June 14, 2020

Selected from the JSMA’s photography holdings by Thom Sempere, Associate Curator of Photography, STILL Photography highlights thirteen superb images representing work that is wide-ranging in style, time, location and subject.  Iconic images by Minor White, Imogen Cunningham, Lewis Hine and Raúl Corrales are brought together with contemporary works of Sally Mann, Dan Powell and Richard Tuschman, among others. 

Using the rubric "still," the exhibition extends a challenge – take this single word (which has multiple definitions) and apply it to the images within the intimate space of the Graves Gallery. Compare and contrast these very individual images, taking in each separately, and then allow them to mingle amongst each other. Like any good conversation, the outcome is never predictable.
