Picturing the Process: The Photograph as Witness
1 Aug, 2009 - 24 Jan, 2010
The fourth in a series of educational based exhibitions presented by the Education Department at MoPA, the exhibition explores the variety of ways that photographers and photographs document people, places and events throughout history. The Photograph As Witness will present a selection of approaches to the genre of documentary photography, from the image as a representation of war, photographs that focus on the human condition, and photographers who document the public and personal spheres. The exhibition will also examine the relationship between the documentary image and the concept of the photograph as reality.
