"Lesotho,'' by Lou Jones, in the show "Contrasts: Varying Visions from Six Master Photographers,'' at the Cape Cod Museum of Art,  Dennis, Mass., through June 25.

 

The show is a group exhibition featuring six seasoned photographers inside the Cape Cod Museum of Art and two off-site pieces of public art.  Edith Tonelli, the museum's director, says that the show "juxtaposes contrasting styles and techniques in photography through a series of pieces from six New England photographers .These photographers are respected nationally and internationally for their artistic prowess in this art form. From Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Maine ,the photographers are: Fran Forman, Cig Harvey, Andrew K. Howard, Lou Jones, Sean Kernan,and Karin Rosenthal. The work focuses on the diversity of emotionally compelling images, camera types, lighting methods, development processes and technology. The...exhibition raises the question being asked in our photographic world today: Is the art of photography changing? It's often directly or indirectly affected by new technology. We want to celebrate the fascinating variety of approaches, from the traditional to the computer- generated, that photographers are using to communicate their personal and aesthetic expressions today.''
