Vision and Optics in Photography installation on view at the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center through July 20, 2015

Vision and Optics in Photography is the current theme of Art, Science, and Technology at the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center, an ongoing series of small installations from the permanent collection that anticipates the opening of the new Science Center in 2016. The works displayed relate to optical devices, such as the camera obscura and stereograph, as well as photographic processes that explore the nature of sight like Eadweard Muybridge’s iconic Animal Locomotion. Also on view are photographs produced through the manipulation of technical methods to serve artistic ends, examples of which are Cutting the Gladdon by Peter Henry Emerson and Agave Design II by Imogen Cunningham. A sampling of optical light effects in photography includes works by Andreas Feininger, Carlotta Corpron, and Minor White. In the Landing Gallery.
