This 3rd FOTOFILMIC17 SUMMER SHORTLIST SHOW offers a broad internationally curated view of contemporary notions of portraiture in photography. This final SHORTLIST opus of the FOTOFILMIC17 season brings together various conceptual, narrative and processorial based inquiries into the representation of the human figure while showcasing a great diversity and range of material artistic practices from medium format longterm documentary projects (Matthias Van Dromme) and socio-conceptual applications (André Viking, Kovi Konowiecki, Trevor Denman) to 8×10 environmental portraiture (Dave Woody), long-exposure urban societal landscapes (Frank Machalowski), experimental darkroom printing (Tamsen Wojtanowski, Thomas Gosset, Brian Henry) and prints as discarded then reclaimed photographic objects (Joshua Littlefield).
Curated by the FotoFilmic Directors each SHORTLIST SHOW presents a different 10-photographer curation drawn from the FOTOFILMIC17 SHORTLISTS ahead of official Jury deliberations. These group shows and the set of contemporary trends and aesthetic formats they come to represent embody FotoFilmic’s core discourse of material practices in the digital age known as ‘The New Face of Film’.
All works exhibited also become part of the FOTOFILMIC COLLECTION and are available for sale at the FotoFilmic Store as limited-edition artist-signed and numbered original prints (framed or unframed).
