Howard Kaplan curated this 1977 exhibition at Columbia College in Chicago with the intent of exploring the intentionally unfocused image. He writes in his introduction, "The less than sharp image functions as a tremendous viewing aid for most photographic audiences. It relaxes the veracity issue (problem) of a photographic image. The sharp photograph is too easily seen (and too easily dismissed) as a viable substitute for the actual event. The less than sharp image facilitates the viewing of the photograph for its intrinsic value as a photograph, as opposed to a document of what once existed." Each artist shown has a markedly different approach to the theme of this exhibition in his or her photographs.
