Don't! Photography & the Art of Mistakes

San Francisco Museum of Modern Art

There's no success like failure; artists know that better than anyone. Don't! Photography and the Art of Mistakes explores how photographic techniques such as double exposure, lens flare and motion blur, deemed errors by one generation of photographers, became interesting aesthetic intentions by the next.

This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock has to say about Don't! Photography & the Art of Mistakes :

This fascinating premise considers the role of accident and chance in the evolutions of photography as a historic medium originally rooted in specific sciences, anchored aesthetically by precise adherence to formal techniques. The experimentation we associate with photography today has sometimes evolved from mistakes. It is compelling to think of past fails leading to new ideas.
