The exhibition "Location" looks at some of the many ways the concept of location in photography differs from "landscape". In geography, location is a position or point in physical space that something occupies on Earths' surface. In photography, location has multiple meanings ranging from the practice of selecting a specific place as an environment for taking pictures outside of the studio to being the subject of the photograph itself. A location photograph pictures a place that speaks to the photographer, but what he or she does with this feeling is as much a part of the photograph as the exact geographic co-ordinates pictured. Unlike the landscape photographer, the location photographer is not just observing, but controlling and provoking a collaboration with the place photographed.
