What does a deep dive into Photography look like? Is it possible to contemplate contemporary photography without seeing where it started and how it has evolved? As the invention of the camera changed the history of painting, the advancement of technology continues to alter photography’s place in the art world.

However, throughout its evolution, there remains a consistency within it’s Merriam-Webster’s definition:

“The art or process of producing images by the action of radiant energy and especially light on a sensitive surface (such as film or an optical sensor).” Moreover, whether taken with a camera or a cell  phone, photography is also defined as a source of information and communication, and a form of creative self-expression and documentation.

The featured artists/ guest jurors exemplify the depth and range of photography and how the medium can push boundaries of self expression and identity. TAC is thrilled to invite these amazing artists to help us look at photography with a new focus.
