An Exhibit of Great Photography in Washington, D.C.


These past few weeks, SEEN has bounced between Venice, Detroit, Randalls Island, and downtown, circa 1981, So why not Washington, D.C.? This month, the National Gallery of Art commemorates the 25th anniversary of its photography program with an exhibit called “The Memory of Time.” With a focus on contemporary photography, it explores how photographs have evolved from a recorder of (supposedly) unbiased truths, to a multifaceted medium where image, time, memory, and history are all manipulated. The exhibit opened on May 3 and runs until September 13.
