The exhibition focuses on the work of contemporary artists who employ techniques, methods, processes and themes that in one way or another resemble those of early nineteenth-century photographers.
As well as being inspired by the pioneering years of photography, they build upon them in surprising ways.
The work of the contemporary artists in this exhibition is characterized by an appetite for experimentation, by crossfertilization and by a multiplicity of hybrid forms.
They pay a great deal of attention to the physical creative process and to the material qualities of their work, returning to the basic principles of photography: light, photosensitive materials, emulsion and chemical processes.
By purposefully experimenting, they create radically new artworks that sometimes only distantly echo the photograph but also tend in the direction of drawings, sculptures and paintings.
