We visited the Voorhees Special Exhibition Galleries at Rutgers University, NJ over the weekend and ran into an excellent exhibition titled 'A New Reality, - Black and White photography in contemporary art'.
Among the great examples of photographs on display were those that included “straight” photography (not manipulated through darkroom techniques or otherwise altered), odd subjects of Diane Arbus (bizarre aspects of everyday life) and unusual sides of fashion photography by Richard Avedon (a photograph where Andy Warhol displays his scarred, post-operative torso).
We could not resist the urge to take pictures of the pictures. For more on the exhibition, please see here.
