Photography Coast to Coast tour

As summer nears, the annual rite of thematic group shows gains momentum. This year a number of titles support the notion of photography as social landscape, including “There’s No Place Like Home” (PDNB Gallery, Dallas); “Beyond the Backyard” (MOCP, Chicago) and “In Our Dreams” (Sasha Wolf, NYC). “When Color Was New” (Julie Saul, NYC) offers visitors a whirlwind retrospective of both talent (Eggleston, Christianberry and Sternfeld to name a few) and processes (dye transfer and Polaroid, for example). More after the jump….
