Revelation: Representations of Christ in Photography

May 22, 2003-October 18, 2003
Location: Nathan Cummings Building for Modern and Contemporary Art
Curator: Nissan Perez
Media: Photography
Though a relatively young art form, photography has continued the enduring tradition in Western art of depicting images of Jesus and Christianity. Through a selection of nearly 150 photographs spanning the entire history of the medium, this exhibition examined the techniques and perspectives of photographers - from early camera practitioners to contemporary artists – and the influence of other art forms on their photographic depictions of Christianity. This exhibition was the first comprehensive survey devoted exclusively to this subject and was accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue.
