Now Open: BIG: Photographs from the Collection

BIG: Photographs from the Collection, which features spectacular, monumentally scaled photographs made between 1986 and 2014 are now on view in the Mark Schwartz and Bettina Katz Photography Gallery. Many photographs read well in reproduction, but these works truly stand apart and demand to be experienced in person. The sheer size of the works, along with their brilliant color and saturation are sure to capture the attention of any one that walks by. The immense size of the images make these photographs feel almost painting-like or even sculptural. Seen together, the eight prints in this collection demonstrate how scale can significantly alter a photograph’s meaning, as well as its physical relationship to the viewer and even the very experience of looking. As a bonus, the exhibition offers the chance to see the city of Cleveland, and our very own Cleveland Museum of Art depicted on a grand scale.
