photographers:network - selection 2006, June 2006



selection 2006

June 24th till July 2nd, 2006

Studio Thomas Kellner

Siegen, Germany


The exhibition shows work by 26 photographers from 11 countries. Photographers and artists trade pictures - many of us do. Each photographer is represented by one selected picture, each traded for one of Thomas Kellner's. In this project, Thomas Kellner invited one hundred photographers world wide to trade an image with him. Out of more than a hundred submissions, the jury (comprised of Thomas Gerwers, Profifoto, Germany; Dagmar Peveling, Galerie Peveling, Cologne/Germany and Thomas Kellner, project coordinator) selected 26 photos to be traded and for the exhibition in Siegen.

The exhibition shows work by artists that are at the same time on a similar path like Thomas Kellner. He gives us the opportunity to see images of his colleagues, whom he meets at festivals and other events somewhere in the world. The photographs are as different as the individuals who make them. There is figurative work, architectural, abstract and experimental photography. Each photograph showing a different imagination: poetic images, collaged imaginations, dreams, perceptions and newly created realities. The end result is a collection of contemporary work and a network, where photographers can connect and help each other in building their careers.

The exhibition is acompanied by a printed portfolio in PROFIFOTO,Germany, showing all the selected images.
