May 17th, NYC: “On the Razor’s Edge: Form and Content in Documentary Photography”

New York Photo Festival 2012
Panel Discussion & Reception: On the Razor’s Edge: Form and Content in Documentary Photography
Thursday, May 17, 2012 at 7:00 pm
Reception and book signing to follow panel discussion.

On the Razor’s Edge: Between Documentary and Fine Art Photography is a featured exhibition at the New York Photo Festival in DUMBO, Brooklyn, May 16-20, 2012.

The artists are leading documentary and editorial photographers working today and include Bruce Davidson, Rina Castelnuovo, Lori Grinker, Platon, Reza, and Eugene Richards. The show is curated by Glenn Ruga.

The exhibition concept explores how photographs based on representations of our world can exist both as documentary and as fine art, and how the meaning of the work can be transformed in each environment. Each of the artists represented here produce powerful work on important global themes. The emphasis on the meaning of this work can vary if the work appears in a commercial art gallery, non-commercial art gallery, book, museum, or on the internet.

This panel will discuss the issues of form and content in documentary photography.   Following the panel will be a reception for the Razor’s Edge exhibition, as well as for The Art of Documentary exhibit in the mezzanine level of powerHouse Arena. This exhibit is work from a call for entries from SocialDocumentary.net.”
