For many years the photo graz biennial has focused on highlighting and promoting the photography scene found in Graz and Styria today. With contributions from 195 fine art photographers and collectives, photo graz 018 presented a multifaceted snapshot of the Styrian photography scene. The exhibition photo graz selection III presents 20 of the approaches – pieces which reveal the extraordinary diversity of this photography scene, contrast different ways of working found in different age groups, and
reflect both current topics and personal approaches.
The works deal with current, socially relevant issues - questions about culture, identity and religion up to control mechanisms of political forces. They illustrate processes within the tensionfield between urbanity and nature, directing one‘s gaze to the parallel worlds of personal sensitivities, as well as to the global effects of human existence. In single images and series, questions on the perception of reality are outlined - in fictive pictorial worlds, documentaries, and even on the sociological study of real living spaces. With the analog b/w photography, the cyanotype, the photogram and experimental photo editing also classical methods and techniques of photography are displayed.
Around 70 pieces provide insights into the current work of internationally active personalities as well as artists from the academy and amateur sectors.
