Abstractions in the Landscape: Group Exhibition of Abstract Photographs 

Photography as a realistic mirror of the world around us began with the daguerreotype in the 19th century. The first abstract photograph was made shortly after when someone used the wrong chemicals or accidentally exposed something to light at the wrong time. Realism and abstraction have inspired legions of photographers ever since. When the Darkroom put out a national call for entries for this show of nonrepresentational images from natural or urban environments, more than 600 abstract photographs came in, including works such as Ted Cullen's Hibiscus (pictured). Curator Sandra Russell Clark winnowed it down to the final 35, a group that reflects the words of the anonymous sage who said, 'Abstract photography is a meticulous science that leaves nothing to chance " except, of course, for those things purposely left to chance." — D. Eric Bookhardt

Through June

The Darkroom, 1927 Sophie Wright Place, 522-3211; www.neworleansdarkroom.com
