Photography, as a mode of communication, has a particular quality of addressing us without speaking down to us. The distance between viewer and subject can be reconciled with the intimacy of studying and inspecting each detail of a photograph. This exhibition seeks to inspire dialogue & quiet conversations with the viewer, transcending cultural and political boundaries.
The exhibition Dialog & Quiet Conversations consists of 12 stories selected from the top finalists of the most recent FotoVisura Grant. Each project presents an intimate account that is either personal to the photographer or so important to society that he or she was driven to act with the hopes of bringing awareness to the cause and advocating for change.
Co-curated by Sam Barzilay and Graham Letorney, this exhibition is presented by the FotoVisura Pavilion sponsored by the Viso Lizardi Family, and produced by FotoVisura Inc.
Featuring work by:
Jenn Ackerman, Poulomi Basu, Alan Charlesworth, Christopher Gregory, Emer Gillespie, Andrea Gjestvang, Elizabeth D. Herman, Nicolas Janowski, Karolina Jonderko,
Sara Naomi Lewkowicz, Diana Markosian, Florian Müller, Jashim Salam, and Fabian Weiss.
