This catalogue details the exhibition of collaborative photographers Suzanne Hellmuth and Jock Reynolds. Their “photographic works attempt to examine the details of meaning within a broad area of visual material." They use an interesting combination of “archival, documentary, and ... photos in various forms of juxtaposition and manipulation” which are used to better understand the “methods of understanding the relationship and historical continuity in visual documentation." Perhaps the most important thing about their works is their ability to raise “questions about the nature of visual information and how its manipulation and contextualization use can alter the viewer’s perception."
