TOM HUNTER: HOW IS THE WORLD? RECENT ACQUISITIONS OF CONTEMPORARY PHOTOGRAPHY, CORCORAN GALLERY OF ART, WASHINGTON D.C. 9 MARCH - 26 MAY

How Is the World? highlights a selection of photographs acquired by the Corcoran Gallery of Art over the past few years. The exhibition features works as varied as Paul Graham’s dramatic redefinition of street photography, Tom Hunter’s ‘Vale of Rest’ portrait of inner city London life and Hank Willis Thomas’s exploration of the connections between spectacle and African American identity. Seen together, the works on view invite us to consider the wide-ranging issues addressed by photographers working today.
