1212 Exhibition: Black-and-White
The 1212 Exhibition: Black-and-White is a crowd-sourced exhibition organized by the Punkt . Project depicting contemporary black-and-white photography with a focus on, but not limited to, the Atlanta area. We can host the work of up to 20 additional photographers (see below if you want to contribute).
Black-and-white photography is a powerful concept that draws from the neglect of color, inspiring our imagination. Black-and-white fuels our inspiration by putting us in chains. Taken to its extreme one might even concur that while color photography is about depicting and documenting, reality, black-and-white’s essence is in the creation of unreal things while capturing their true inner identity. Is it really the sky if it is depicted in black-and-white? The 1212 exhibition will celebrate black-and-white photography and its unique and important role in contemporary art and photography.
