Exhibition: 9 June – 14 July 2012
The Young talents in this exhibition are three recently graduated photographers from the HKU; Sanne Cobussen, Peter Lipton and Laura van Rijs and the young German photographer Malte Wandel. The binding factor in their work is their social interest for situations and people.
Laura van Rijs has made a wonderful series of ‘head scarves’ on the heads of women, photographed from behind and arranged by colour, in order to dispel the stereotype of the head scarve as a black and inapproachable object. Sanne Cobussen shows a series of photographs portraying falling people. When you look a bit closer they appear to be elderly people, practising how to fall. Peter Lipton and Malte Wandel have focused their cameras on social abuse in Ecuador (Lipton) and difficult social circumstances in Mozambique (Wandel).
