Since its invention in the nineteenth century, photography has made a profound impact on visual culture, the history of documentation, our understanding of the wider world, and the capacity for representation in the arts. Artists who work in photography focus primarily on the process of making two-dimensional, lens-based artworks but must also understand and employ technical considerations involved in both digital and analog methods of image production. Whether utilizing historic photochemical processes or contemporary DSLR and smart-phone cameras, the exploration of vision is fundamental to the photographic practice and aesthetic. Practitioners of photography create uniquely composed images of artistic expression by employing a wide range of skills, from storytelling to complex uses of technology and technique. Photography both documents and questions reality, and transcends the ordinary to offer a viewer an alternate perspective to consider.
