The photographs in the exhibition testify as signs and expressions of a story about transient times in our societies. As a medium photography is exciting in its ability not only to freeze time but to capture the energy and essence of the locality and subject, like dancing youths losing themselves in the moment. The photographs offer viewers a position to become voyeurs of this unique scene as well as represent a ‘portrait of a generation’, as suggested by Nan Goldin or Wolgang Tillmans, at the same time, the essence manifests as “elegiac symphonies” on the youth body – learning, free and instinctual. The photographs capture fleeting moments at night time, in a documentary style. The photographers tend to show a part of the community they belong to and their body of work offers a kind of generational testimony.
