"This new installation of photographs from the DMA’s collection highlights the exemplary work of more than 20 women photographers who have expressed softened and dreamlike aspects in their pieces. By experimenting with distortion and placing particular emphasis on how the body connects or contrasts with the surrounding environment, these artists invite viewers to feel a sense of strange familiarity in their works."
