About the Book
The Cerritos College Art Gallery is pleased to present "after image: the photographic process(ed)," a group exhibition featuring thirteen local, national, and international contemporary artists working to surface the physicality of the photographic process and, by extension, the embodied nature of image viewership. Through the manipulation of photographic prints (using various non-traditional strategies, such as bleaching, cutting, folding, poking, pouring, scratching, sewing, and soaking), the exhibiting artists work to counteract naïve assumptions regarding the inherent ephemerality of technologically-based representation; erasing the over-determined idealization of the theorized image in favor of the endlessly contextual materiality of the photographic object.
