Photography Sees the Surface

Paper Magazine


Based off the book Photography Sees the Surface published by photography students at the State School of Graphic Arts in Prague in 1935, this group show, as well as the original book, highlights how photography can both capture and skew the details of an object’s surface. The show’s organizer, Aspen Mays, has brought together over 20 contemporary photographers (who are also teachers and professors in the medium) as well as historic material, like a photo from Man Ray’s teaching journal, to re-explore the many ways of seeing 80 years later.
