"What we know about the history of photography," writes curator Anne Wilkes Tucker, "is less than what remains to be discovered." A poignant observation about the blank spaces of retrospective awareness, that might indeed be applied to our history at large.

MUÑOZ & MUNIZ

Fernando Castro
Although Brazilian Vik Muniz and Colombian Oscar Muñoz take different approaches, they have this in common: their works are always more than mere appearance would indicate. Muniz often uses photography as an endpoint for a highly unorthodox assortment of media, whereas the work of Muñoz includes photography as part of a larger conceptual process.

CHIC CLICKS

John Howell
What does money do to passion? Can "pure" desire be distinguished from "dirty" commerce? Such basic questions were posed by the sprawling exhibition "Chic Clicks," which juxtaposed commercial and creative pictures taken by the same forty photographers.

Across the United States there lies a landscape few have seen. This hidden world is made up of the silos, test ranges, and weapons facilities that were built to prevent (or win) World War III. These sites were the frontlines of the decades-long conflict of the Cold War.

Every time a satellite is sent into orbit, it is propelled by booster engines and fuel tanks that jettison from the launch vehicle once they are spent. While all other space-faring nations launch their rockets out to sea, Russia’s Baikonur cosmodrome lies deep in landlocked Kazakhstan, so rockets fall to the ground.

In 1997, I did a photo-project about the German border, using a pinhole camera. I had been thinking about doing a panorama of the country’s entire border for many years, but couldn’t figure out how to do it. Finally I came up with a solution: split it up into single situations.

Anne Wilkes Tucker
What we know about the history of photography is less than what remains to be discovered. Although photography was one of the most powerful cultural forces in the twentieth century, the extent of its influence will not be fully grasped until we understand the patterns of its evolution worldwide.

I had a friend in St. Petersburg named Leonid Lubianitsky. He was a theater photographer who eventually emigrated to the United States, and worked for a short time for Dick Avedon. Leonid convinced me to take a little automatic camera on one of my tours—to Thailand and Japan.

The sun has risen over Seneca Lake to the whisper of poplars and the raw hollering of bantam roosters. John Coffer gets up and soaks dry oatmeal in cold milk, gives the chickens their feed and the smoldering campfire a handful of dry pine needles.

Evgeny Berezner
Russian Pictorialist photography has until recent years been largely ignored in surveys of the medium’s history. The current revival of interest in the genre is due in great part to the efforts of photographer and collector Mikhail Golosovsky, along with curators Evgeny Berezner and Irina Tchmyreva of ROSIZO, the State Center of Museums and Exhibitions, of the Russian Ministry of Culture.

We call the movement to return to old photographic processes the antiquarian avant-garde. So mixed are its motives that it might not be credited as a movement at all. Almost every photographer who still enters a darkroom inevitably strays into alternative processes, even if only briefly.

As thousands and thousands of refugees streamed across the border, the scene at Morina became more chaotic. The stench of vomit and urine stung the air. At one point, the influx of refugees reached such a frenzied pitch that the border guards abandoned their record-keeping, snatched up the table, and fled to the customs hut.
