Second Sight refers to the apparent power to perceive things that are not present to the senses.  Conversely, this term is also adopted by theorist Roland Barthes in his criticism and theorization on photography, Camera Lucida: Reflections on Photography. Barthes states that the “photographer's 'second sight' does not consist in 'seeing' but in being there”.  Second Sight: New Representations in Photography ventures beyond our preconceived perceptions of what is and what is not photography today.  Whether they investigate photographic image-making as object, history, truth, or trompe l'oeil, these artists challenge, push, and ultimately expand upon the lexicon of photography.
