PMH Press Release
Photographic Museum of Humanity announces the release of its new online exhibition When the Night Comes. The 5 galleries that compose the exhibition are centred on the theme of the night and feature the works of award winning photographers like Alejandro Chaskielberg, Valentina Quintano and Szymon Roginski.
When the day ends a whole new world begins at night. The forbidden, the indecent, the darkest side of our soul finds a suitable moment to come out. In an aesthetic sense, photographers use the camera to explore the visual and symbolic potential of the nocturnal image.
Some get inspired by a new range of lights that come out at night. Others are drawn to gritty underworld people and to sparkling parties and picture the night as a shadowy realm of pleasure, danger and transgression. There is only thing they have in common: they are all guided by the mysteries of night.
WHEN THE NIGHT COMES EXHIBITION PROGRAM
ONLINE SEPTEMBER 2ND – OCTOBER 8TH 2013 | WWW.PHOTOGRAPHICMUSEUM/MUSEUM
GALLERY I: "THE HIGH TIDE"
BY ALEJANDRO CHASKIELBERG
As viewers of thousands images per day, we like to stay in front of an image we have the feeling to have never seen before. This happens with Chaskielberg's night images. The full moon, the geography, the local people and nature itself combined: Alejandro takes us into a nocturnal trip and shows us the magic world of his moonlight images.
GALLERY II: "THE WAY THEY DANCE"
FEATURING THE WORKS OF OWEN HARVEY, LAURA MORTON & RAFAEL AROCHA
Absurd, whimsical, kinky, wired. This gallery approaches a very particular and eccentric universe: the jet-set parties. People dancing seem more transparent and expose an exaggerated version of themselves: cooler, richer, groovier, sexier. The three authors of these photographs share a similar visual style and make us feel that we are wandering in one of these parties for a while.
GALLERY III: "IN THE ABSENCE OF THINGS"
BY VALENTINA QUINTANO
What if the whole day happens at nighttime? Photographer Valentina Quintano travelled in wintertime to Murmansk, Russia, one of the most northern cities in the world. The result is this photographic exploration of a place where the sun does not appear for 40 consecutive days.
GALLERY IV: "NIGHT SOULS"
FEATURING THE WORKS OF NAZIK ARMENAKIAN, GIULIANO CAMARDA, MARC MCANDREWS,
MADS NISSEN, GIORGIO TARASCHI, ANTONIA ZENNARO & AMI VITALE
Different authors show us the night through portraits. Sordid characters, lonely people, night workers. They have been photographed in different countries, places and situations, but we can still see a clear line connecting theme.
GALLERY V: "DREAMERS"
BY SZYMON ROGINSKI
A quiet side of the economic boom in China. This gallery shows us part of the Chinese society taking the streets to sleep. "Dreamers" is like a metaphor of every demographic phenomenon, the hidden part of the phenomenon. What the night is to the day.
