Over the past few years art photography has vividly taken off in Austria. Interesting developments and approaches along with new opportunities are now part of this new generation of photography. Current events and relevant issues in Europe and the United States, as well elsewhere in the world have found their expression within the art of photography.
Photography is one of the youngest and, at the same time, most exciting art forms: a pictorial language that draws on the tension between the two seemingly opposing poles of voyeurism and exhibitionism. It produces and leaves behind emotions; it moves, unsettles, and attracts. With its intense atmosphere, photography inspires, stimulates, and opens the way for critical dialogue.
The goal – to show YOUNG AUSTRIAN PHOTOGRAPHY, a platform for photography to a wider audience – started with the attendance at FotoWeekDC, Washington DC/ USA in 2012. Since then YOUNG AUSTRIAN PHOTOGRAPHY Exhibitions where shown three times in DC. Furthermore there have been Exhibitions in Maryland, New York City and Chicago. Furthermore YOUNG AUSTRIAN PHOTOGRAPHY recently was part of the VIP Program Paris Photo Los Angeles.
Participants: Stefan Olah, Bruno Klomfar, Luise Hardegg, Monika Nguyen, Six & Petrisch, Laurent Ziegler
