The Image Looks Back

In an era of post truth, fake news, and manipulated images, The Image Looks Back explores the reconfiguration of photography, asking how notions of visual truth and human experience are shaped by new technologies of vision. If the photograph has conventionally been understood as a record or memory of the world, what happens when the image looks back?

Art Exhibition previously on at RMIT Gallery in Melbourne precinct, Victoria, Australia.
