A CLOSER LOOK
Open Call for "A Closer Look" photo exhibit
Scale is an important facet of images. Small-format photographs force observers to get close and lean into the picture. A small size image establishes intimate connections between the photo and the viewer.
In conjunction with A Closer Look, a private collection of cabinet cards will also be on display. These wonderful small scale portraits became popular from the 1870s to 1900. In addition to having a warm sepia tone the backs were often elaborate advertisements for the photographer's studio.
