We’re thrilled to present the 20 photographers who will have their work exhibited at Klompching Gallery in New York City this winter. In putting together this show, the directors of the gallery, Debra Klomp Ching and Darren Ching, carefully reviewed submissions from our international community of photographers before narrowing their selection to these 20 works. The diverse selection showcases an inspiring range of approaches to contemporary photography, made by talented image-makers from all over the world. The group exhibition will launch with an opening reception at Klompching Gallery on December 13.

The selection of 20 images was made both on the basis of their individual strengths and the delicate interplay between the differing visions. Each of the photographs chosen shows us a unique perspective of the world, while the conversation across the visual approaches offers us an intense, tantalizing slice of the diversity of contemporary photography.

In just 20 frames, we travel across the spectrum of photographic genres while also traveling around the world. Classic, yet still potent documentary photographs; powerfully composed portraits; mixed media experimentations playing with the materiality of the image; challenging still lifes and much more.

In the words of the two curators, “The selection of photographs for the LensCulture Print Show was predicated on a few key considerations,” said Debra Klomp Ching and Darren Ching. “We chose photographs that could stand on their own merits; photographs that had an immediate visceral impact and artworks that we felt were new, exciting and well-executed. Additionally, the twenty artworks we selected showcase a range of exceptional contemporary photography from different genres, appealing to both a wide audience and a collector base.”

In addition to the exhibition’s visual diversity, the show brings together a truly international group of artists—with photographers hailing from Turkey, Slovenia, the United States, the Netherlands, Japan, Germany, France, Bulgaria, Australia, and the UK. Many of them have yet to exhibit their work in New York City, making this an excellent opportunity to discover new work.

The 20 exhibited photographs will be printed by Picto, a world-renowned printing lab, and will be on display until December 23, 2017. We hope to meet many of you at the opening event!
