"I think the whole notion of technical standards within photography has flown out the window, and that's part of what's so interesting about what's going on now. The digital has thrown everything up to question, and part of what the show looks at is how artists were doing that—even before the digital—and made this impact on photography. So it's a kind of a continuity between people who are manipulating Polaroids, or painting on photos, or doing strange things with chemicals in the darkroom. Before the digital made this impact, it was always that ambition to open up the photo to different kinds of expression."
