In the 19th century photographers used the camera to create a visual record of the world, documenting people, items and places. Over time the idea of a photograph as a factual document has come into question, and as we move into the 21st century the advent of social media and rapid dissemination of false news has further eroded the credibility of a photograph as a factual document. This exhibition will look at the ability of a photograph to function as a document, whether a captured moment or construction, and perhaps as a representation of truth.
All genres of photography will be considered. 15 photographs will be selected for the exhibition. Submission details:
Open to all New School Students
