New Visionaries – Photographers Who Bridge Art + Commerce

 

New Visionaries – Photographers Who Bridge Art + Commerce at Mount Ida College

The exhibition at Mount Ida College highlights photographers who possess the ability to translate personal vision into real world commissioned imagery

In the past, the two distinct photographic genres of fine art and commercial rarely intermingled. Now, with the prevalence of the photographic image in our hyper visual culture, there exists an endless need for brands to develop visual identities. The boundary between these once distant genres is blurring. Today there exists the inherent demand for photographers to have the ability to synthesize their personal visions into images that communicate the brand story, be it for corporations, organizations, communities, or individuals.

The exhibition highlights the requirement for photographers to have the ability to translate personal visions into real world commercial imagery, bridging genres and resulting in the construction of a new paradigm within photography.
