About Hamburg Triennale of Photography
Featured on LensCulture
- This year’s edition of the Hamburg Triennale tackles a range of contemporary issues—from the environmental crisis to the concept of “home”—all dissected through the medium of photography.
- There is no more intimacy—today we share everything. This unsettling transmedia project shows how bored, young couples around the world are unafraid of exposing their intimacy (read: offering sex performances) for paying, online audiences.
- While today’s exchange of digital photos is certainly rampant—it’s not a wholly new phenomenon. This smart, original exhibition shows how sharing has always been at the heart of photography and how today’s behavior is more of an evolution than a revolution in the way we consume images.
- While most who question the future focus on the big issues, each one of us is also preoccupied with personal concerns—love, loss, aging, death. Conceptual photographer Phillip Toledano explores these themes in ways both touching and wholly irreverent.
- Cinematic, moody yet fresh: a European-wide art project which aims to celebrate the idea of the flâneur within the contemporary urban fabric of the continent.
- Using photography as his tool, Henrik Spohler seeks answers to the world’s biggest questions—his monumental images offer a vision of the incomprehensible.
- With a tightly focused theme on the future of photography (and of aesthetics in general), the upcoming edition of this highly regarded German festival looks promising! Our editors preview some of the most exciting work that will be featured.
