Akron photographer Andrew Borowiec’s reputation is founded on his insightful approach to documentary subjects rendered in beautifully printed black-and-white photographs.

- Last Chance: ”Photo/Synthesis at the remarkable DeYoung Museum in San Francisco (OK, maybe I am obsessed with the coasts) closes October 3rd. It features works by heavy hitters like David Hockney and Ed Ruscha.
Dating from the 1960s to the present, the works in this exhibition transcend the limitations of traditional photography in which the camera simply captures a unique view or a decisive moment in time. Breaking free of the conventional frame, they are instead the products of various methods of assembling and organizing multiple photographic images into larger artistic statements.
