FotoFocus Biennial: Meet 5 local lens-based artists

FotoFocus, the region-wide, biennial celebration of lens-based art, returns this month. The theme for 2016 is “Photography – The Undocument,” examining the extent to which photography and videography capture or distort/mask reality. Though national and international talent will be showcased throughout the month, Movers & Makers has focused on five local lens-based artists with solo shows and their approach to this year’s theme.
