How can not taking a picture be a photographic act? In her tour of photographic practices, Rebekah Modrak liberates the technology from the domain of the fine art print to include operations of the human eye, protests of the atomic bomb, and a collection of iconic paintings in the Otsuka Museum of Art. Modrak’s recent projects include her soon to be published book on those photographic practices embedded in many actions and disciplines; the three-dimensional people she has constructed in order to bring to life her imagined childhood; and ebayaday, which used eBay as a site to distribute and contextualize artists’ works.
