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.
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.
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 & Quiet Conversations is produced by FotoVisura Inc.
