American avant-garde filmmaker and photographer Hollis Frampton wrote, "When it comes to practically everything, we seem to be of two minds." He believed photography was both trace and transformation, simultaneously able to describe and alter a subject. The complex idea inspired seven Phoenix-area artists to put together the photo exhibition “Practically Everything.”
"The most interesting photographers seem to be grappling with not only the world in front of their lens but also with how photography might record and transform that world," Mike McLeod, one of the featured artists, says. "All of the artists seem to be dealing with these concerns but from wildly different perspectives."
Other artists in the exhibition include Dana Buhl, Cory Fitzgerald, Michael Lundgren, Mike Williams, and Christian Widmer, as well as exhibition curator Bucky Miller.
