press release

Opening Night Party Fri, Jul 27, 8–11 pm | Grand Lobby & Galleries

A self-described “professional looker,” Berlin-based artist Schmid has scoured archives, the streets around photo booths, and internet webcam sites for the raw materials out of which he crafts his sly and sardonic works. He invites us to re-“see” photography, questioning the nature of authorship and the role of the photographer. This mid-career survey includes his signature series Bilder von der Strasse (Pictures From the Street) to more recent multi-channel digital photo installations. Exhibition accompanied by a monograph.

Organized by the Tang Museum at Skidmore College, Saratoga Springs, New York and The Photographers’ Gallery, London.
