Focus Pull

15.05.2012 | Art , Blog | BY:

For the Saatchi Gallery’s first photography exhibition since 2001, Out of Focus features 38 artists, each demonstrating the different ways the medium can be stretched and explored.

There’s fashion’s favourite, Ryan McGinley, collage supremo John Stezaker, and everything else inbetween. In a world mediated through images, the photographs in Out of Focus, show how photographers have encouraged photography to relinquish its grip on reality in order to push artistic boundaries. With an overwhelming abundance of different techiniques on show, the viewer is left to ponder, what is photography anyway.

Out of Focus is at the Saatchi Gallery London until July 22.
