Each artist combines a photographic image or images with other media, or manipulates the original image during the development process - utilizing such techniques as collage/montage, hand-coloring, digital technology or negative printing - to create a "new'' interpretation of the photograph. Other photographic formats featured in A New View include digital images, Iris prints, Polaroid transfers, and Cliche-verre.
Since its origins at the end of the 1830s, photography has never ceased to evolve aesthetically or technologically. Early photographers introduced modifications for a variety of reasons, but principally to improve the efficacy of the chemical reactions involved or to produce a variety of results that were governed by aesthetic choices. Today, changes occurring in photographic materials and equipment are far more likely to be the work of commercial manufacturers. Contemporary photographers, and creative individuals who include photographic imagery in their art-making, take advantage of the myriad techniques and processes available - from the historical to the modern.
