Short Stories in Contemporary Photography

Museum of Design, Zurich

A parallel between literature and photography where multiple narrative possibilities emerge

sintesi del comunicato stampa

With contributions by Harry Gruyaert, Bertien van Manen, Aernout Mik, Erwin Olaf, Eric Stitzel, Guy Tillim, Erwin Wurm. In literature, the short story is a concise fictional narrative often perceived as an ideal form for modern storytelling. One can see parallels between the short story and contemporary photography in which distinct narrative possibilities emerge: reportage photography, in which a story is condensed visually; staged photography, in which a plot is developed as in the theater; video stills that condense a complex story in a single image; and photography mixed with different media that distorts or transforms them into a new storytelling form. By presenting the various approaches of international artists - each with its own strong statement - the exhibition highlights the most important strategies of contemporary photographic storytelling, and thus becomes a space with very distinct narratives.
