On Look FilmsPhotography is arguably the region’s most widely practiced artistic medium. From analogue to digital to experimental, the range of photographic techniques used throughout central North Carolina is both broad and deep.

This group survey presents the striking crosscurrents of photographic work by thirty-nine artists with a strong connection to the Piedmont. It blends the imagery of both emerging and established photographers, and spans the 1970s to the present day. Some artists work within the genres of landscape, portraiture, and still life, while others take abstract and conceptual approaches. Themes touch on Durham and the South, immigration, cultural traditions, family history, gender, race, sexuality, music, and religion, among others. All the artists capture the immediacy and possibility of photography, while their images provide dynamic views of the world through wide-ranging methods and techniques.
