Long Exposures: Contemporary Photo-Essays from the Permanent Collection

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art
October 12, 2006–January 7, 2007

Long Exposures is an exhibition of contemporary photo-essayists organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and incorporates works drawn exclusively from the Photography department’s permanent collection. The exhibition explores varying themes of humanistic or environmental conversion, transition, and upheaval, and reflects a varied range of conceptual, formal, and technical approaches prominent in the genre from the 1990s to the present, with works from six artists—Simon Norfolk, Anne Fishbein, Nic Nicosia, Vincent Cianni, Andrew Freeman, and Sant Khalsa—who have established themselves as innovative and influential visual voices of the contemporary photo narrative.
