John Coltranes Live in Japan 4-disc set was released in 1991. Fresh out of college, I was diving with abandon into the excitement of free jazz, and the recordings from Coltranes 1966 Japanese tour were more of a treasure trove than I could have hoped for. Compact discs werent new, but they were new enough to me that the thick, plastic, double-hinged jewel box was a chest of gold.

Perceptual psychologists have long dismissed the notion that our brain records images like a camera; seeing is an interactive process of grazing, in a visual field that extends around us on all sides, rather than a series of flat images projected to a single point. Yet photographic images retain special authority as records of visual experience. In his current exhibition, James Hyde undertakes to dislodge this persistent prejudice.
