Truths & Fictions: A Journey from Documentary to Digital Photography
A magical and illuminating photographic exploration of Mexico and the United States, Truths & Fictions is the most comprehensive body of work to date using digital-imaging technology. Mexican photographer Pedro Meyer employs the new medium in these images to convey powerful insights into human nature and the nature of perception. Meyer's blend of documentary photography and computer-imaging makes for an idiosyncratic journey across the Americas that is in turns hilarious and disturbing. Strolling saints, angels and devils, peasants, presidents, and beauty queens all pass before Meyer's camera - and then through his computer - resulting in images that appear convincingly real yet strangely impossible, subverting the myth of photographic truth.
