This catalogue, created for the multi-site exhibition Fraction of a Second (June 5 – August 8, 2015), presents work from 45 diverse contemporary photographers, both established and emerging, with 35 artists from across the United States featured at 516 ARTS and 10 international artists featured at UNM Art Museum. Curated by David Bram, editor and publisher of the online Fraction Magazine, this is the inaugural exhibition of PhotoSummer. PhotoSummer is a collaborative initiative that strives to represent and actively promote historical and contemporary photography in New Mexico. Each summer UNM Art Museum partners with other organizations in Albuquerque, Santa Fe and throughout the state in order to highlight the very best of photographic practice and scholarship.

This volume includes essays by Michele Penhall and James Elkins. Of the work, Penhall says, “With a keen and perceptive sense of what makes a good picture, each month Bram presents a handful of engaging and original portfolios by young and/or emerging artists whose work, in almost all instances, has never before been published or seen online. And he does this one image at a time. …In addition to the contemporary work Bram presents, he has featured work by a number of established and renowned photographers…This nod to both photography’s history and canon provides balance to the very au courant nature of publishing visual work online, as it also no doubt introduces many young and/ or foreign photographers to some of the discipline’s significant artists and iconic images.”
