“I really believe there are things nobody would see if I didn’t photograph them.” -Diane Arbus
The artists featured in this exhibition display honesty and candor in their approach to photographic narrative, oftentimes choosing to illustrate subjects frequently overlooked and ignored, such as prostitution and gender dynamics. With a touch of humor, a nod to art history, and a global perspective, this exhibition will illuminate and inspire deeper examination of the subjects presented.
Below, an article in Swiss magazine ‘Art Collector’ previewing the show, which runs through February 23rd at Riehentorstrasse 14, CH-4058 Basel:
