One-of-a-Kind: unique photographic objects from the Center for Creative Photography will be at the Phoenix Art Museum, 1625 N. Central Ave. in Phoenix, from April 11 to Oct. 25.

According to the Phoenix Art Museum website, the One-of-a-Kind exhibit challenges the expectations that photographs are infinitely reproducible multiples. Typically photographs are printed from a negative or digital capture, and can be produced in editions ranging from a few prints to several hundred. However, some photographic processes – including daguerreotypes, tintypes, and Polaroid prints – produce only a single, one-of-a-kind object.

In other cases, artists choose to use materials in a way that produces a unique artwork, such as sculpting and collaging with or painting and drawing on photographs.

This exhibition includes works from the entire history of the photographic medium, from the 1840s to the present day. Unique photographs in the exhibition include photographs by David Emitt Adams, Pierre Cordier, Betty Hahn, Bill Jay, Chris McCaw, Joyce Neimanas, Susan Rankaitis and Andy Warhol.
