Art In America

Penelope Umbrico

at LMAK Projects,
139 Eldridge St

In 2012, Penelope Umbrico was awarded a monthlong Artist Research Fellowship from the Smithsonian, during which she photographed 136 cameras in the museum's history of photography collection. Umbrico applied the "old style" Photoshop filter to her images and installed them in a narrow vitrine; the presentation of once high-end equipment, now obsolete and tagged like dead bodies, is both forlorn and clinical. A slideshow projected onto the back wall shows trippy images of a mountain (famously photographed by Ansel Adams) run through over 500 smart phone camera filters.
