Slideshow "Hidden / Intimate" | OBSCURA Festival 2015 | curated by Calin Kruse

A major feature of OBSCURA Festival’s programming are the slideshows. The OBSCURA Slideshows are a social event that happens each night between the 15 – 21 of August 2015 and represents an amazing exploration into photography.
I am honored to be the curator of one of the Slideshows at this year's festival.

Curatorial text of the Slideshow "Hidden / Intimate"
– curated by Calin Kruse / dienacht Publishing

Photographers bring some of the most amazing stories about our world into our realm of reality through the images they create. The role of the photographer/subject are well defined: “This is the photographer, and here is the story”. There is always a small gap between them.

This curation of works seeks to reveal the inner psyche of photographers through the camera turned onto themselves and their very personal surroundings. It is a peek into the inner fragility of a world that is seldom seen, into the deepest and / or darkest sides of oneself, seen through the lens. This is the realm of the hidden/intimate.
