Portrait Process exhibitionFrom people watching to storytelling, Portrait/Process appeals to the voyeur in all of us while exploring the various genres of photographic portraits.

The Portrait/Process exhibition examines approaches in contemporary photography, and provides a historical perspective on the portrait from the daguerreotype to the smartphone.

The Portrait/Process exhibition was curated by Ellen Curlee.
