Should you happen to be in or near New York City the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) opened its annual contemporary photography exhibit New Photography on September 30th.  It runs through January 11, 2010.  The exhibit features the work of six young artists whose styles range from abstract to representational.  The exhibit attempts to answer the question “what it means to make a photograph in the twenty-first century.”  The six artists displaying their work in this installation are, Walead Beshty, Daniel Gordon, Leslie Hewitt, Carter Mull, Sterling Ruby, Sara VanDerBeek.

For those of us in Phoenix the Phoenix Museum of Art has a portrait photography exhibit in place until January 10, 2010.  Face to Face: 150 Years of Photographic Portraiture examines the photographic portrait.  According to the museum’s site it explores “the stories portraits can tell, the ways photographers convey the essence of their subjects and the impact of the relationship between photographer and subject.
