Portrait/Process

June 19, 2014 – September 28, 2014

From people watching to storytelling, Portrait/Process appeals to the voyeur in all of us while exploring the various genres of photographic portraits.

The Portrait/Process exhibition examines approaches in contemporary photography, and provides a historical perspective on the portrait from the daguerreotype to the smartphone.

The exhibition is divided into sections exploring the various portrait forms such as the environmental portrait, the self-portrait, the vernacular portrait and the historical portrait. The photographs illustrate how various processes facilitate the intent, concept, and expression of the artist.   

In addition to the works by contemporary American artists and photographers, the exhibition includes iconic images from several area collections and the International Photography Hall of Fame and Museum’s collection, as well as an amazing selection of daguerreotypes from a single St. Louis collector. The Portrait/Process exhibition was curated by Ellen Curlee.

The International Photography Hall of Fame is grateful to the St. Louis collectors and companies who have agreed to lend their collections for this exhibition, and extends its sincere thanks for the kind cooperation of all of the artists featured, who have graciously lent their work to this upcoming exhibition.

The Opening Reception for the Portrait/Process exhibition will take place on Thursday evening, June 19, 2014 from 6:00 until 9:00 pm. This reception is free and open to the public. IPHF will also host a private “Press Preview” event for the media on Thursday afternoon between 2-4pm.
