Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving what you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything." – Aaron Siskind
About the Exhibit
Slowing down is a disappearing element in society today. Running faster every day, we are in an age of instant gratification, no worry, and a delete culture. However, just like the resurgence of music on vinyl, film-based photography is making a comeback and finding a voice through a whole new generation in search of authenticity and the experience of the real. Analog, production of images, has warmth, graininess, and individual characteristics that digital photography lack.
This exhibit is part of the Fort Dodge / Kosovo Art Initiative, an international collaboration between the city of Fort Dodge and the country of Kosovo. The exhibit jurors are residents of Kosovo.
