Now it this photo (above) is on exhibit in Barcelona, Catalonia Spain in The Art of Photography at the Valid World Hall Gallery (in collaboration with PH21).
Although photography first emerged as a technological invention, it was also quickly conceived as an artistic practice as well. Pictorialist photographs in the nineteenth century were created to look like paintings, while advocates of straight photography in the first part of the twentieth century strived for the purely photographic means of creating photographic meaning. Street photographers devoted the medium to capturing the fleeting moment, while in the last part of the twentieth century many photographers turned to staging and directing in order to utilize photography for artistic visual communication. Art photography also includes numerous genres and creative practices from portraiture, landscape and still life to abstract and conceptual photography. In this call we asked contemporary photographers to show how they understand photography as a fine art practice in the twenty first century. – Zsolt Bátori curator
I don’t think I’ve ever had my photos on exhibit in one month in one Museum, two galleries and three countries. I’m seriously delighted. And I’m also delighted that two of them are from my Pandemic Shadows Project
