    Opening Reception

    In 1998, Jason Thrasher crowd-sourced a months-long trip to India by pre-selling darkroom prints of the photographs he would make there and on his return exhibit as an enduring body of work. This trip coincided with the arrival of the Internet in India and the dawn of massive changes across the country that would occur over the next two decades.  20 years later, the negatives have been made clearer through new digital techniques in the exhibition "Jason Thrasher | Uncovered Perspectives: India 21 Years Later." See Art Notes on p. 12.
