PH21 Gallery Photo Exhibition “A world beyond”
Theme: A world beyond
Photographic images may depict what was in front of the camera at the time of exposure with a high degree of faithfulness to the visual properties of the scene. So-called realistic portrayal is, indeed, important for a number of photographic genres. Photographers, however, often strive for something different, something that goes beyond mere photographic documentation; they put the medium to creative use to lead us to imagine and explore worlds beyond what has actually been recorded by the camera. Complex psychological and social relations, imaginary worlds, real and fictive stories, or even abstract contemplations are all engaging photographic subjects, making photography a uniquely versatile communicative and artistic medium. It is the imagination of the photographer that creates rich complexities for our interpretation which, in turn, take us beyond the visual recognition (or the lack of thereof) of what is depicted in the picture.
