International Photography Hall of Fame and Museum: Thursday, 19 June 2014


June 19 / September 28
Opening Reception / Thursday, June 19 / 6-9p

From people watching to storytelling, Portrait/Process appeals to the voyeur in all of us while exploring the various genres of photographic portraits. The exhibition examines approaches in contemporary photography, and provides a historical perspective on the portrait from the daguerreotype to the smartphone.

The exhibition is divided into sections exploring the various portrait forms such as the environmental portrait, the self portrait, the vernacular portrait and the historical portrait. The photographs illustrate how various processes facilitate the intent, concept and expression of the artist.

In addition to works by Contemporary American artists, the exhibition includes iconic images from St. Louis collections, the International Photography Hall of Fame collection, as well as an amazing selection of daguerreotypes from a local collector.
