A first of its kind, Half Tone – a dedicated photographic exhibition and periodical celebrating the work of a select collective of African analogue photographers, was recently launched and will be available to view between 08:00 – 17:00 from Monday to Friday until 26 October 2018.
Half Tone aims to offer a platform for the development and celebration of new African work from young voices: Ones who speak beyond the great photograph to reveal the humanity behind the shot. There is a raw simplicity behind their images and at times a romantic approach to the subject matter where the viewer is unwittingly implicated in an often-awkward moment of revelation.
Analogue photography was the original magic. A static mirror of the present, locked in a format for posterity. The equipment, the photographer, the pose and the flash. Time sealed in silver nitrate and fixed on paper. A vital moment of people and space in time, invoking a sense of perspective for the viewer.
Half Tone is a creative platform showcasing the work of African analogue photographers. Half Tone celebrates mindful images. Half Tone shies away from instant gratification. Half Tone celebrates the future of the past.
Along with the official exhibition launch, Half Tone – Edition One, a periodical which constitutes of a collection of the exhibitors’ work with in-depth articles on each and produced with the highest quality material Orms has to offer, will be available for purchase. This is a limited edition publication and only 200 will be produced. You can purchase this publication by following the link below:
