At its most basic, collage is the assemblage of different materials to create a new whole. Materials can come from books, magazines, found imagery, the Internet, or virtually anywhere, creating limitless opportunities for artists.

Increasingly, photographers are embracing digital software and source materials to create work that pushes the boundaries of the medium. This exhibit takes a fresh look at how photographers today use collage to deconstruct and reconstruct narratives using a mix of new, digital technologies and more traditional approaches.
