The Renaissance Society presents a solo exhibition by Chicago-based artist John Neff from March 3-April 14, 2013. The exhibition includes a new body of photographs made from digital cameras Neff built by outfitting desktop scanners with bellows and lenses taken from antique cameras. Made without shutters or viewfinders, the cameras capture images using a slow-moving linear scanning array, rather than a full-field sensor. Over the course of 18 months, Neff used the scanner cameras to photograph his immediate environment, his long-exposure photographic process resulting in intimate, tonally rich images that have the look and feel of earlier moments in the medium’s history.
The Renaissance Society, located on the campus of the University of Chicago, is a free, open to the public non-collecting and internationally renown museum of contemporary art. Please visit The Renaissance Society website for more information.
