Reclaim Photography !
There was an exhibition of photography in the centre of Stockholm today. In a spontaneous action 12 photographers exhibited their prints on the pillars of Sergels Torg.
I was one of the participating photographers. The following text called "Reclaim Photography" is a brief statement or manifesto of what it is all about. Please visit www.reclaimphotography.blogspot.comto participate in this movement starting today and hopefully spreading around the world.
Next event in Stockholm is planned to take place on
Saturday 1 October at 13 00-15 00 (Sergels Torg) - Mr Urbano
International readers of 591 - please send an email to mrurbano (see contact page) and let us see if I can put up some of your prints. That would be great fun.
Photography is the art form of our time. We see photographs in galleries, museums, on the Internet, in magazines and books.
Many photographs are displayed in the streets and in public spaces. But those pictures are usually about advertising - a call to consume.
We need other images to feed our imagination and sharpen our minds. We need the art of photography to be seen outside galleries, museums or computers.
Support our idea of Reclaim Photography - Photography to the Streets and Public Spaces
Arrange exhibitions in the streets - spread photography as an art form to more people. Help to create a new visual landscape in our everyday environment.
