Carl Chiarenza and Roger Bruce share a deep interest in the history and aesthetics of photography. Carl is a scholar, educator, and an established artist of major reputation. And it was only five years ago that Roger began to make photographs in earnest. Roger will tell you that he is a student and admirer of Carl’s work: “It is so pure. He’s an artist who makes images using photography’s most elemental assets.” And for Roger, after 45 years working in organizations that care for or interpret photographs, he was keen to be a “born again” image maker – but this time using the surprisingly precise yet fluid tools of digital production. Here in Interior/Exterior we see clearly contrasting work -- bound together in shared views and mutual respect.

See Through: Windows and Mirrors in Twentieth-Century Photography brings together a group of images that are doubly framed—once by the camera lens and again by the border of a mirror or window. By refracting and distorting, revealing and concealing, these reflective and transparent surfaces both draw attention to the photographer’s efforts to frame the world and expose the contingent nature of reality. Highlights from the exhibition include works by Eugène Atget, Carl Chiarenza, Robert Doisneau, Elliott Erwitt, Walker Evans, André Kertész, Joanne Leonard, Danny Lyon, and Joel Meyerowitz. By extending the limits of perception, these witty and provocative works invite us to see [through to] new visual possibilities.
