Some of these photographers consider themselves as artists; others, photo Journalists. Still others just call themselves working photographers. There are those who consider themselves chemical engineers who take pictures to test their inventions of photographic materials. Make no mistake, however, the photographers in this exhibition are all artists of the highest order, recognized by curators, dealers, collectors, art historians and their peers worldwide. Their work represents a wide range of artistic expression and subject matter, from political celebrities to working people, from everyday studio portraits to the dark side of street life, from landscapes to cityscapes and from botanicals to sunsets--each image a masterwork of observation, vision and artful control of this complex and intriguing medium.
Click! is curated by Hyde director Charles A. Guerin and is being shown in the Hoopes Gallery at The Hyde Collection from March 21 to May 31, 2015.
