Description

This exhibition organized by the Walker Art Center celebrates a new generation of photographers who work primarily in color for newspapers and magazines. Twelve internationally recognized photographers whose work bridges the gap between art photography and news journalism are featured. The photographers represented in On the Line are attempting to forge a new chromatic language, expressing in color a power and mastery equal to that of black and white photography. Each photographer is represented in the exhibition with ten photographs from a single subject of essay.
