Jordan Tate‘s latest work wrestles with one of the key contemporary preoccupations of our field: photography qua photography. In other words: How do we see? What are suitable subjects for photography? And what are viable means of image-making? Tate’s work belongs to a growing group of photographers indebted to predecessors Christopher Williams and James Welling. But Tate pushes the conversation beyond nostalgia and squarely into the present by indulging in screen-based images and nontraditional output methods like lenticular screens, animated gifs, and 3-D anaglyphs.
