A room with a view, please.

Morgan Lehman Gallery presents Frame of View–the third solo exhibition of photographer David S. Allee.

Allee explores the perception of reality in digital photography, by focusing his camera on a single window frame. Allee captures and reconstructs three-dimensional views–city skyline, a private room, and garden–into the illusion of two-dimensional space. The series redefines the relationship between reality and photography, including the viewers notions about realism and illusion. What is reality? What is illusion? The viewer may never know, but Allee will force him jump through this illusionist window, in search of an answer.
