Summary Photographer Aaron Siskind sought to demonstrate the expressive potential of a medium often thought to be limited to mere description, although he began his career as a documentarian. His mature work, consisting of close-up details of both natural and cultural artifacts firmly negate the camera's customary perspectival depth. In Mexico and South America in the 1970's and 80's, he focused on remnants of scrawled political slogans that had been repainted to obliterate their original messages.
