About the Exhibition:

In Ritual and Ruin: Tableaux of a Lost War, Knox uses a sample of photography from the Library of Congress and his own images to create surreal collages of 19th-century American battlefields and ruins. The black and white photographic works evoke early photographic methods, such as the Daguerreotype, tintype and the wet-collodion method.
