'Mtaphorclmrels itrigue the eyes.

By Jenny Put
The newest exhibit at the
University of Michigan Museum of
Art, "Legacy of Metaphor:
Photographs as Equivalent",
spotlights the works of six great
American photographers: Ansel
F. !-13S

Adams, Elliot Erwitt, Wynn
Bullock, Minor White, Michael
Smith, and Paul Caponigro. Their
photos follow Alfred Steiglitz's
philosophy of "Equivalence", which
is a theory stating that the meaning
and response to an image may have-
little or nothing to do with the
subject matter

'Nine of the photographs
featured are black and white, with
only one color print from Paul
Caponigro, titled "Redding Woods,
Connecticut." This photograph
captures the essence of a peaceful
October day, with the leaves
turning a burnt orange and the
barren treetops casting shadows on

the forest floor. (Can't you just feel
the delightful Autumn wind
rustling the paper now? No?) Half
of the photographs in this exhibit
deal with nature, such as "Sun Over
the Pacific" by Minor White and
"Near Blue River" by Michael
Smith. The rest are austere
interpretations of hands, doorways,

posts, and windowsills meant to
bring profound thoughts and images
to mind. These photos date from
1947 to the early 1980's.
Generally speaking, this is a
very pleasing exhibit to look at,
assuming you're into photography.
The subject matter is simple, yet

very striking and interesting in it's
own way and even if the photos
don't knock you off your feet, they
aren't supposed to. These
photographs "act as a symbol or
play the role of a metaphor for
something that is beyond the
subject photographed." Wow.
