Judith Turner is a noted American photographer whose subject matter is mostly architecture. Turner’s training as a designer allows her to visually understand an architect’s intention and to reveal it in compositions that she constructs and edits through her camera work. Her photography can be seen as a metalanguage of architectural intention and as an artistic expression that is inseparable from the representation of the built work. Turner’s signature style consists of highly abstract black-and-white compositions that play with the ambiguity of light, shadow, and tonality to heighten the aesthetic character of her subject matter and reveal visual relationships not readily apparent. This exhibition will present approximately forty photographs spanning Turner’s three-decade career. See UMMA for more information www.umma.umich.edu
