"Much of the time when we think about what a camera does, we think of it as a producer of images,” says the exhibit’s artist, Daniel Arsham, whose first camera was a Pentax K1000. “The object itself is not always what is important. The camera is not the cultural artifact, the image [it produces] is.

The reduction of color allows audiences to experience the formal qualities of things.

Many of us that use photography have a relationship with the object. If you want, call it a fetish, but the camera is definitely an object than can evoke strong feelings."
