Photographic Visions is a biannual exhibition at PH21 Gallery, showing mini-series of works of selected artists who submitted their portfolio for our solo exhibition competition. This show follows the solo exhibition of the winner of the competition. Our aim is to celebrate the work of photographers whose portfolio is progressive and visionary, forwarding photography in the 21stcentury.
Photographic Visions – Summer 2019 presents three images in the form of mini-series from eight photographers.
Maritza Caneca works on the photographic analysis of different kinds of swimming pools as artistic objects.
Bruce Berkow considers the world around us to be always intriguing, therefore his goal is not to take the viewer somewhere else, but to have the viewers return and feel more present where they are, wherever they are.
Nikolett Fuska compares the stiffness and lifelessness of sculptures with health and disease, symbolised by the colour red.
In his series entitled Re-Altered Landscapes Dan Gemkow focuses on portions of imagery that are abstracted to interrupt the systematic construction of the suburban landscapes, where the viewer’s task is to reconstruct the fragmented details.
In the series entitled Broken Models by Jennifer Steensma Hoag suggests a scientific method of understanding and quantifying our experience of nature.
With the project Burdens of a White Dress Jen Kiaba explores religious conviction asitcrumbles into an eventualfailure of faith, often co-occurring with the loss ofidentity.
The photographs of Dongwook Lee aim to stimulate the perception and subconsciousness of the viewer. The work raises the question if dolls – anthropomorphic but non-living – may be understood in time and space, and how they are perceived in the fleeting moments.
With a new understanding and approach to contemporary portraiture by Coco Martin we can enter the 'magic kingdom of a candlelight'.
