“Comprised of 26 stoic photographs installed in a seemingly melodic rhythm, Twenty-six challenges the boundaries of collective versus individual experience in modern daily life. Through repetition, simplicity of composition, and unexpected interruptions, Margevicius asks viewers to slow down and read the images as if they were text. The work presents a myriad of possible narratives, calibrating the intellectual rigor of today’s audience. Through sparse compositional shifts and methodical image placement Margevicius nods toward contemplation versus scrolling, inviting viewers to indulge in an introspective pause.”

“Yuri Kozyrev and Kadir van Lohuizen (NOOR) were awarded the 9th edition of the Carmignac Photojournalism Award dedicated to the Arctic. The endowment allowed them to carry out their pioneer double polar expedition «Arctic: New Frontier». For the very first time, two photojournalists have simultaneously covered the entire Arctic territory to bear witness to the irreversible effects of climate change. They wanted to experience the dramatic transformation of natural landscapes and the demographics in the Arctic, and the impact of these changes on the lives of the region’s inhabitants.”

“Since the founding of the United States, voices of resistance have given rise to concerns and movements to improve the quality of life for a greater intersection of The People. This series looks to the past to understand the struggles, gallant efforts, and endurance of those who came before; to find inspiration in the work they did to lay the cornerstones of who we are today; to build a bridge of conversation between then and now in order to connect more deeply with those who were ignored and devalued in the past, in order to imagine a more inclusive, brighter future for generations to come.”

“Life Stand Still Here explores internal dialogues and moments when life and its darkest facets can offer monumental symbolism. Inspired by the writings of Virginia Woolf, Rafael Soldi is interested in the elusive abstract space within us that defines the core of our psyche. With the idea that each of us has a certain resolute innerness—a core of selfhood that we can’t share with others because it is so private, internalized and visceral, Soldi is drawn to this ambiguous, sometimes painful inner darkness, not the kind that is perverse, but the kind that feels unknown and is, by default, frightening.”

“Curated by Jennifer Murray, Furtive is a photography-based exhibition that explores the complexity of memory, both personal and collective. Through an examination of place, archive, and the intersection of perception and knowing, three artists ask us to reconsider what we think we know based on our past experiences, communal knowledge and memories.”

“The best of reproductions cannot easily restitute the fullness of the works of Gabriela Morawetz, whose “volume”, even though these are photographic images, has more in common with three-dimensional, moving objects. These are complex works, done on canvas, on glass, and on metal, where-in reflections play with their matter. With Morawetz, photography enters another dimension. Weightlessness, working in zero gravity appears then as a metaphor for the work of this artist who, disconnected from reality and completely absorbed by an idea that has become an absolute urgency, is ever borne forth by an underlying energy toward an unknown result. This investigation transforms Morawetz into an alchemist grappling with the magic of matter and practical experiments as she moves between her studio and her laboratory. Having come to photography gradually after studying painting, sculpture, and engraving at the Academy of Fine Arts in Cracow, echoes of all these practices remain highly present in her work.”

“Russell’s work challenges the traditional conception of photography as producer of evidence, and provokes reflection on our understanding of nature and the landscape. He uses historical plant and floral patterns from the Arts and Crafts era of the late 19th to the early 20th Century as source material for his drawing, and thus alludes to the concept of the infinite within nature. Though he pushes conceptual and art historical boundaries, Russell remains a Romantic and his artwork is a way for the viewer to experience the wonder that he has found, and that continues to inspire him.”
