Pictorial Photography at the SLAM

I went yesterday to see the new exhibit, Impressionist Camera, at the St. Louis Art Museum. It's rare these days for me to see an exhibit for something interesting that I had never heard of, but I had never heard of "Pictorial Photography". It was interesting in the sense that these were artists who essentially did manipulated photography, not unlike what I've done with photography incorporated in stained glass. Though in the exhibit photos, almost all involve a manipulation of the chemical process of photography. In general, I like the spirit of technical experimentation in the service of creating new types of artwork.
