‘Lucid Eye’: A yearlong glimpse of images

The Visual Arts Gallery inaugurates “The Lucid Eye: A Year of Photography at Emory, 2009–2010” with 20 exceptional works on loan from the prominent Atlanta law firm of Arnall Golden Gregory.

“Each image in this exhibition is a masterwork in the practice of self-consciously artistic photography as it emerged during the twentieth century,” says Jason Francisco, associate professor of photography and co-curator of the “Lucid Eye” series with Mary Catherine Johnson. “Whether in the vein of abstraction, documentary, portraiture or fantasy — and frequently in combinations — photographs, as this exhibition offers them to us, are images with a particular purchase on miracles, one announcing another.”

The exhibition, featuring works by Margaret Bourke-White, Harry Callahan, William Christenberry, Paul Strand and others, opens on Aug. 27 with a reception from 5–7 p.m., and runs through Sept. 25.
