Skeptical Gaze: How Photomontage Blurs the Lines of Reality
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Skeptical Gaze: How Photomontage Blurs the Lines of Reality" explores silver gelatin prints and newsprints which contain the photographic technique of photomontage. Techniques that manipulate images, such as photomontage, have been extensively used throughout the modern analog film photographic process and continue to be used in a prolific capacity within the digital photography realm with programs like Adobe Photoshop. "Skeptical Gaze" specifically connects contemporary ideas about skepticism towards visual imagery with traditional darkroom techniques as a way to encourage the audience to assess their trust and belief in what visual representations they are consuming. Comprised of artwork from the Syracuse University Art Collection, Special Collections Research Center, Light Work Collection, and Visual Studies Workshop, this exhibition highlights images that use both fine art photography and mass media produced photography as a vehicle to begin this conversation.
