FOTOFILMIC18 is the 6th edition of FotoFilmic’s traveling exhibition competition presenting 30 emerging and mid-career photographers from 12 nations in representation of material practices in contemporary photography. Unique in its genre and scope, the exhibition assembles a wide range of analogue and film-based photographic methods collectively picturing a resurgent attraction to, and preoccupation with the materiality of photographic envisioning in a world increasingly defined by computational measures. Reclaiming a core artistic wholeness to the experiencing and interpreting of reality through the positive limitations inherent to analogue capture and media, each photograph offers a fascinating glimpse into photography’s fluid present, and constant reinvention since 1839. Exhibition Jurors included photographic artists Joachim Brohm (Essen, Germany) and Greg Girard (Vancouver, Canada) as well as renowned international curators of contemporary photography and art Joachim Naudts (Curator, FOMU, Antwerpen, Belgium), Barrie Mowatt (President, Vancouver Biennale, Vancouver, Canada), Heather Snider (Executive Director, SF Camerawork, San Francisco, USA) and Jeong Eun Kim (IANN & The Reference, Seoul, South Korea).
