“A Snapshot of My World” Photo Contest

Photographs help portray the world we live in. The Hunter’s permanent collection features artists using photography to document their daily lives, their neighborhoods, and people who are important to them. And this winter, the Hunter presents two exhibitions featuring photographs that capture daily life and use technology to alter reality.
