FotoVisura Inc in collaboration with United Photo Industries is delighted to present Dialogue & Quiet Conversations: Part II, a gallery exhibition on display at United Photo Industries Gallery. Curated by Sam Barzilay and Graham Letorney—this exhibition consists of 12 individual images selected by a panel of leading curators and editors from the top finalists of the most recent FotoVisura Grant.
Photography, as a mode of communication, has a particular quality of addressing us without speaking down to us. The distance between viewer and subject can be reconciled with the intimacy of studying and inspecting each detail of a photograph. This exhibition seeks to inspire dialogue & quiet conversations with the viewer, transcending cultural and political boundaries.
Dialogue & Quiet Conversations is a two part exhibition consisting of a projection and a printed show. As part of the FotoVisura Pavilion sponsored by the Viso Lizardi Family, Dialogue and Quiet Conversations is produced by FotoVisura Inc.
About the FotoVisura Grant
The FotoVisura Grant aims to support personal photography projects and encourage the production and development of photography outside the commercial realm. The Grant aims to recognize photographers as judged by their images, story, dedication and commitment of the photographer to the story or concept, Additionally, we consider the extent that he or she is willing to go to bring about positive change in society. It is our belief that this profession needs to recognize its emerging leaders—and the FotoVisura Grant stands for recognizing, celebrating and supporting the international community of emerging photographers and its leaders.
