Graham Howe: Color Theory

Sol Mednick Gallery

Inspired by textbooks on the theory of color photography, Graham Howe undertook to recreate and test the veracity of the so-called governing principles of the medium. His findings, though sometimes humorous and spuriously unscientific, nonetheless lead us to believe that there is often more to photo-science than meets the eye-ball. Ducks (all lined up), edible things, rocks, baseballs, Egyptian pyramids and the nude demonstrate how color can be used (and abused) in photographic practice.

Reception: Friday, November 16, 4 - 6 p.m. in conjunction with The Photo Review: Best of Show exhibit in Gallery 1401.
