Contemporary Color Photography at Colby

A new exhibit at the Colby College Museum of Art—"COLORS: Contemporary Color Photography"—includes photographs by Elke Morris of run-down Maine tenement buildings. It runs through April 23.
Elke Morris, a Bates College professor, creates photographs of aging buildings in Maine’s industrial towns. Her large-scale prints capture these decaying architectural sites with the precision of a scientific specimen, while her purposefully blurring of parts of the scene gives her photographs a surreal quality.
