May 23 - Jim Finch: “Photo Manipulation: The First One Hundred Years”
Photography has often been divided into "straight" or "manipulated" but photography has never been straight. Almost from its inception, practitioners have manipulated the printed image for a variety of technical, commercial and artistic reasons. This presentation, with examples drawn from the collection of Jim and Jane Finch, explores the first 100 years of that multifaceted tradition.

Jim Finch is a local medical practitioner who has been collecting photography for over 30 years, spending countless hours not just in museums and galleries but also flea markets, antique stores and auctions, drawn to anything photographic. A milestone for Jim was taking a photography class many years ago taught by Jerry Uelsmann, a class that not only propelled his photo fascination but also kept him looking for early examples of photo manipulation.
