EXHIBITION DATES: 15 February 2018
The Orms Cape Town School of Photography is pleased to showcase the work of emerging photographers at our upcoming exhibition; I WANT TO SHOW YOU SOMETHING, scheduled to take place on 15 February 2018.
I WANT TO SHOW YOU SOMETHING aims to bring together a collection of intimate photographs, which offer up private moments for consumption in the public realm. Domestic spaces, small (seemingly insignificant) acts, vulnerability and the taboo, and the dynamics of familial and romantic relationships is chief among the subjects explored in the tradition of intimate photography. In this sense, intimate photography sets its gaze on the ‘everyday’ and (as an antidote to the glamour of the ‘good life’ so often portrayed on social media) gives a central place to the beauty and pathos of the unspectacular.
