San Francisco-based Maggie Preston‘s practice represents an exploration of the basic concepts of the photographic medium and engages the complexities of its representational value. The technical strategies and critical approaches employed by Preston at once explore the process and materiality (or aesthetic translation) of photographic objects, as well as their presentation and social reception.
The title, An Unfixed Form, references the perpetual advancement of the photographic medium, its technical aspects are always changing and evolving. For Preston, the subject of photography encompasses the multitude of ways that exist to capture an image, and this exhibition serves as a sort of metaphor for the ever-unfixed state of the medium.
