Opening is on Wednesday, 11 February at 6-9pm
JAMM Art Gallery is pleased to present New Pictorialism: Three Visions – Three Photographers, a group exhibition curated by Katya Traboulsi, featuring photographs by Ali Azarmi, Danielle Rizkallah and Vivian van Blerk, and paying homage to pictorialism and the very origins of photography where the precise, objective reality promised by photography has always had to co-exist with the subjective perceptions of the human being holding the camera.
The aim of the pictorialists, a movement that gained influence after 1885, was to obtain the recognition of photography as an artistic medium. To achieve this, photographers suppressed all that appeared too scientific in photography in favour of an aesthetic, plastic and subjective expression. Photography, until then seen as an expression of pure verifiable reality, was to be transformed into an art form representing personal visions.
Exhibition is ongoing until 5th of March 2015
