Uta Barth - The Long Now
 



"Over the last twenty years, Uta Barth has been steadily producing a body of work that stands apart from the dominate trajectory of photography.  That trajectory has always been rooted in making a visual record of things in the world.  This descriptive function of photography is so fundamental to our understanding of what the medium is and does that it can be hard even to register alternative approaches.  Certainly we can see the traces of the visible world in Barth's photographs.  They are not exercises in abstraction.  Nonetheless, description of the world is not her primary aim.  Instead, Barth is interested in pursuing issues of perception: of how we see as much or more than what we see."
