Have to admit I was very disappointed this past weekend when I went to the Chicago Museum of Photography. I have been looking forward to going to the 'big city' and seeing these amazing works of art as to be inspired - wow what a joke! Either I'm too intellectually inept to 'get it' or something but every display I saw looked like a beginner's attempt at photoshop. No REAL photography. I expected Ansel Adams-type impressions, instead I got some cheesy '60s-style 'art.' the 'featured' photographer was John Baldessari - photos with cutout sections replaced by color circles???? There was a reception for this display and NO ONE was there. NONE of the food had been touched and I was there later in the afternoon. My opinion, that museum is run by the elite artsy-fartsy crowd and NOT by photographers. How disappointing. I kept searching room by room for SOMETHING that didn't look like a high school class project - NOTHING! Anyone else feel this after visiting a local photo exhibit?
