Mahlstedt Gallery Explores Photography in the Digital Age

All in the Past by Philip Mckay

During a time when carrying a high-quality camera is as ubiquitous as owning a smartphone, Mahlstedt Gallery has taken a step back to look how today’s professional photographers are growing and changing with this ever-evolving technology. The Gallery presents Contemporary Photography, an exhibition that features works by five digital artists: Aitor Arana, Andrei Tallent, Astro de Sagun, Lori Hutchinson and Philip McKay. Each of these photographers experiments through new creative outlets like computer programs, which allows them to more properly express their artistic vision. Various and ever-changing digital advancements allow for these artists to convey their expressions through a diverse range of innovative processes. This provides new possibilities for a more meaningful visual communication with its viewer as well. Contemporary Photography is on view through January 4, 2018 in New Rochelle.
