Philadelphia based gallery, Fleisher Ollman has just opened a new group exhibition, called 'Off Camera'.
The show, which runs until February the 19th, is a survey of photographic works which have been drawn or painted upon, animated, collaged or made into sculpture.
Some works "fix" the print, highlighting an area with line or hand-colouring, other pieces remove crucial details and focal points entirely, or use mark-making across the surface of the print to obscure an event or reveal an imagined pattern or interior landscape.
In other works, the constraints of the print are ignored and the artists take a variety of liberties - including extending the edges of the image by adding on paper, drawing or painting, collaging with other materials or creating a new, subtly transformed image by combining two or more photographs.
There are also pieces which free the photo from two-dimensionality via folding, cutting and shaping prints into sculptures, while others interrupt the image's stillness through animation.
To sum, this looks like a pretty interesting show, which aims to challenge our vision by making visible that which is not apparent, confuse genres, subvert photography's traditions and factual claims, and manipulate reality and meaning.
