The artists featured in EXPOSURE 2011 take a strong interest in the human condition. Probing portraits, vibrant social interactions, historically-inflected landscapes, and provocative situations are all present in Johnson’s selections. The placement of each project encourages the viewer to find connections between the artists’ subjects. Although the show encompasses wildly different stylistic approaches, each project flirts with documentary photography, shedding light on the human experience in unique ways. However, the photographers seem more intent on introspection, discovery, and questioning than pointing out conditions in need of change.
