NOMA premiers the newest body of work by Josephine Sacabo (American, b. 1944). In Salutations, Sacabo combines collaged and distorted photographic images with a wet collodion on metal process that dates back to the 19th century to create a world that is barely recognizable as such, hovering like a memory or a dream in the space between the concrete and the ineffable.
