Shoot # 15
Lund, Sweden – July 4, 2015
Whether you are an old or new friend I welcome you to Oberg PhotoGraphics .
Shoot is a single photo, a digital gift – a moment of meditation – with which I wish you a good Sunday and weekbegin.
Now, I’m exploring what happens when we go to exhibitions. Above is a shot of spectators in front of Jim Shaw’s monumental “Capitol Viscera Appliances” (2011) – with nuclear explosion, technological products and the White House. It is af if they witness and photograph the end of the world…
I explore that in some sketch-like photos I’ve uploaded to my Pinterest place under the headline “Pictures At An Exhibition” – follow if you like, there will be more. Visitors and gallery owners at Art Basel and the Biennale may find themselves there.
Can pictures of such art-ificial settings become art beyond documentation?
Finally, don’t miss the new GlobalArt Magazine which I curate. Welcome to follow it.
PS Thanks for all encouraging comments to and sharing these “Shoots”.
