With a Trace: Photographs of Absence in Akron

July 1, 2013

74535-4

Akron Art Museum
Jul 27, 2013 – Jan 26, 2014

With a Trace: Photographs of Absence features photographers spanning several generations who have not just captured a scene but created a moment in time. Their images bear traces of human presence, the transmission of energy, atmospheric phenomena and experiments with light. Among the artists, Christopher Bucklow, Sophie Calle, Margaret De Patta, Adam Fuss, Alison Rossiter, Hiroshi Sugimoto and Daido Moriyama use a wide range of processes to render their enigmatic subjects. Primarily analog or even camera-less photographers, they highlight the versatility of non-digital photography in capturing what the eye may not see. All of the images—whether a picture of a place or thing or purely abstract—emanate a mystical timelessness that promotes meditation.
