Humble Arts Foundation and The Magenta Foundation are delighted to present Small Prints, an exhibition of 50 photographs curated by Amani Olu and Jon Feinstein that encourage artists and viewers to move past the idea that “bigger is better,” in exchange for a more intimate interaction with photography. The images, presented uniformly in 8 x 10 inch frames, encourage a delicacy not often taken with images viewed at large scale or online, and a return to appreciating the photographic print as a distinct object. As with other Humble exhibitions, we are excited to present a range of work that pushes the boundaries of the photographic medium, breaking from rigid genre-based classifications for a more fluid understanding of photography’s potential.
