Critics Eager to Get a Glimpse of Crime Unseen

If there’s one thing you don’t want to miss this fall, it’s Crime Unseen.

The newest exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Photography, which opens to the public on October 28, has already been touted by Art Info’s resident blogger, Tyler Green, in his post “Fall Exhibitions You Won’t Want to Miss.”

By examining the role photography plays in capturing the evidence hidden within a crime scene, the show asks whether seeing truly is believing when it comes to the presentation of dramatic, dark and ultimately disturbing events.

Take a look at the photographs below for a sneak peek of what’s in store!
