Insights | The Poetry of Silence
Curated by Alexander Montague-Sparey, the exhibition will explore the medium’s historically innate quality at being both elegant and meditative. Focusing on photography's quiet capacity to capture the very essence of the human condition through haunting portraits, still lives, as well as subliminal seascapes & landscapes, artists in the show include Matt Lipps, Erica Deeman, Eva Schlegel, Tammy Rae Carland, Viviane Sassen and Klea McKenna, among others.
Insights is a particularly relevant platform for PHOTOFAIRS as collectors are increasingly turning their attention to the collection of maverick works, unique, single-edition pieces, as well as works which speak to the other fine arts.
