Settlers of Chernobyl - The Atomgrad Refugee Family
Mysterious, intense, timeless, at times nostalgic, black and white photography is, to me, magical. These images remind me of why I fell in love with photography in the first place.

Gallery exhibition: June 27 – July 28, 2018

As a curator, I am intrigued by images with fresh ideas and vision. But as a photographer who loves black and white photography and who has spent a lot of time in the darkroom, I am drawn to both powerful contrasts and nuanced greys.

As a result, my selection for this exhibition is subjective and undeniably emotional. I wanted to showcase the vast range of possibilities that black and white photography offers, from images inspired by the pioneers of photography to fresh interpretations that digital techniques allow.

Jurying this black and white exhibition was a difficult but fascinating experience. Thank you for allowing me to discover so many incredible images. I was captivated by the stories you had to tell, your unique point of view and your creative choices.
