NarPhotos: Moments from Turkey

19. September 2017 26. October 2017

Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung and f³ – freiraum für fotografie show a selection of works by the collective NARphotos.

NARphotos is a collective established in 2003 by photographers for whom documentary photography is a visual tool of  “understanding and expressing” the world. The aim is to show the various conditions in human life. For the members the way of realizing their projects has an importance as well as the final result. In times where producing together, sharing the knowledge, support and collectivism become less, they belive that the function of the images has a priority over their plastic and esthetic values. Members of NARphotos do not accept what is given as the way it is. Instead of staying satisfied with the given answers, they prefer to ask more questions. They produce photo reportages with the idea of trying to change the situation instead of admitting and protecting the existing circumstances.

Curated by: Attila Durak (Artistic Director FotoIstanbul), Gisela Kayser (Artistic Director Freundeskreis Willy-Brandt-Haus) and Katharina Mouratidi (Artistic Director GfHF).

The exhibition is to be seen at Heinrich-Böll-StiftungSchumannstr. 8, 10117 Berlin.
