Post Two: Making a Scene
In Focus: Making a Scene
June 30–October 18
The Getty Center
This newest installment in our thematic look at the Museum’s photographs collection presents a variety of staged photos, from daguerreotypes to Polaroids, that illustrate how photography often poses fiction as truth. Spanning the 1800s to today, works by Lewis Carroll, Julia Margaret Cameron, Man Ray, Lucas Samaras, and others use stagecraft and occasional darkroom trickery to tell intriguing stories.
