Program Description

Art Close Up points a keen lens on contemporary photographers who play with our sense of reality. Deborah Martin Kao of Harvard's Fogg Art Museum take Art Close Up through the work of Arno Minkkinen, Robert & Shana ParkeHarrison, and Nicholas Kahn & Richard Selesnick, photographers who challenge the notion that what you see is what you get. Art Close Up reveals how these image-makers employ a range of techniques — including simple in-camera framing, painstaking multiple-negative compositing, and elaborate staging and set construction — to stand reality on its head. This special is produced and directed by Benjamin Mayer.
