«Half Days», half day is bright and half day is dark as in black and white.
A variety of street photography, urban, photojournalism and poetry assembled in one black & white theme, the exhibition is about the different interpretations of black and white photography by five photographers of Geneva Photographer.
Geneva Photographer initially started as a facebook group for those who wish to go taking photos together, mainly on the streets of Geneva. Later on, it has developped into a community of photographer both amateur and professional. With 270 members, everyone share their knowledge and experience from a simple article to a technical discussion with those owing the experties, as well as event organisations such as visits, group photo-walk. Having a numerous of talented photographer in group, it was only a matter of time to show their great work to public and share the excitement our first collaborative photo exhibition.
An Indonesian based in Geneva, Dhini decided to develop further her passion for photography when she won the FNAC marathon photo in 2012. Focusing in street & travel photography, Dhini prefers to display her work in black and white.
She has participated in Swiss International Photo Exhibition at Lausanne in 2013 and has recently received honorable mentions by Prix de la Photographie (Paris) for some of her photos.
Isaac is a Swedish, Swiss-based communications specialist, blogger and aspiring photographer. Mixing urban, nature and street photography, he enjoys late nights, wide-angle lenses and long exposures. When he is not working, blogging or snapping photos, Isaac spends time with his partner, daughter and friends. He also likes dogs and diving.
David decided to stop growing old at the age of 29. Trained at Centre National des Arts du Cirque in Châlons, France. In 2000, he moved from North Wales to London and set up 'BTS Project’; a collective of artists and performers living and performing together in a warehouse located off Pudding Mill Lane in East London, at the very exact spot where the London Olympic stadium was later built. In 2005, he had the good fortune to be involved in ‘Vanishing Points', a collaboration between writers John Berger and Anne Michaels and theatre-maker Simon McBurney; a show that spoke of memories and hidden histories, of arrivals and departures. In 2006 I was invited to Chuncheon International Mime Festival, Korea to open their two-week event with a televised live performance of 'The Moth that God made blind’, a performance on two ropes. Not surprisingly, my photographs often have a theatrical element to them. My work has become more solitary since moving to Geneva in 2010, working more with 4x5 paper negatives.
