Description of Artwork: There were 80 prints in the exhibit, "4 Photographers, 4 Visions." Lewin's photos were described as "abstract in the purest sense." John Seward uses mirrors to distort nude human figures into abstract forms - this was the controversial work that led to the cancellation of the whole show. Melanie Seward uses a plastic camera called a Holga to create images of people in a natural setting. Jansen Sterba uses a Holga and an old 35mm camera to create distorted images of nature.
