For more than a quarter century the Albany Institute has been collecting the work of contemporary photographers from the Hudson Valley. Diverse in its range, the collection has grown to include portraits, landscapes, still lifes, and photomontage, and represents a variety of photographic processes from gold-toned printing-out paper to infrared digital photography. Multiple Focus, an exhibition of more than forty contemporary photographs from the Institute’s holdings, underscores the artistic processes and aesthetic considerations of the region’s recognized photographers, and simultaneously takes into account the effects of changing technologies on the photographic medium and the photographer’s work.
The exhibition highlights forty-three photographs from twenty-six photographers. Those represented in the exhibition include
