"Today everything exists to end in a photograph." -Susan Sontag

Sontag made this observation in 1979.  Thirty-seven years later, the same concerns are continually being raised.  The usage of the photographic medium has come to the forefront of our everyday encounters.  A viewer becomes complacent int he absorption of imagery rather than questioning the truth of what they are seeing.  In the absence of truth, new meaning is generated.  Three artists who start from the same set of photographic concerns address these issues of issues of representation.

"All I know is what's on the internet." -Donald Trump
