Three artists explore contemporary approaches to the photographic print through the examination of its physical properties, the possibilities of its reproduction, its vulnerability, and its uncertainty as a production of truth.
Ben Schonberger received his MFA degree in Photography from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2013 and holds a BFA in Photography/Computer Imagery from Shepherd University. Utilizing photography, appropriated imagery, digital montage, and performance his work examines the complexities of identity through narrative.
