New Photography is an annual series of exhibitions devoted to significant recent work in photography. Since 1985, over fifty artists from thirteen countries have been featured in this forum. After a six-year hiatus, the New Photography series resumes with New Photography ’05, which presents work by four artists—from Cuba, Holland, the United States, and South Africa, respectively—working in a variety of techniques and across a range of themes. Although the exhibition focuses on individual achievements rather than surveying movements or trends, the diversity of the work reflects the scope and vitality of contemporary photography.

Organized by Eva Respini, Assistant Curator, Department of Photography.

The New Photography series is made possible by JGS, Inc.
