Accidental Mysteries: Vernacular Photography from the Collection of John & Tenuh Foster
September 16 - October 28, 2006
This exhibit featured over 65 photographs from the vast collection of John and Teenuh Foster. These "vernacular" images -- old snapshots scavenged from antique shops, flea markets, online auctions, etc -- tell the partial stories of their anonymous creators, fused with new meanings each viewer brings to them. Most of the photos were presented in their original form, with a few that were digitally enlarged to emphasize their narrative qualities.
