Red alert!

A juried international photography exhibition

September 24 – October 14, 2015

 

The meaning of photographic images is shaped by the unique interplay of depictive and conceptual content as well as compositional features. Colours often play a significant role in photographic meaning construction; they may have symbolic meanings, conceptual significance, and they can also contribute to or even determine the internal structure and the composition of images. Red is one of those characteristic colours that are often used for such purposes. Its potential for symbolic significance and its strong, vivid presence make it an excellent candidate for creative photographic endeavours. Photographers have been relying on the potentials of red throughout the history of colour photography, and it is always a rewarding experience to survey contemporary photographic works with an eye for the many uses of the colour red.
