Works from five photographers come together this summer at the Albany Institute. The exhibition Summer Exposure offers five different ventures into photographic vision, media, and artistic conception. Each photographer was given the freedom to select the content for his or her own exhibition. For Hoey and Fels that meant focusing on a single series, and for Blackwood, a single theme "elements of place." The content selected by both Benjamin and Jaeger offer retrospective overviews of each photographer's work. In total, the variety of subject matter and photographic media makes for an exciting summer of discovery. (Open during regular museum hours: Wed 10am-5pm, Thurs 10am-8pm, Fri 10am-5pm, Sat 10am-5pm, Sun Noon-5pm, Mon Closed, Tues Registered groups only)
