Leading South African Gallery, In Toto will be hosting the photographic exhibition, Exposure, where ten distinguished photographers come together with a wide range of subject matter, artistic vision and photographic techniques. This exhibition, which celebrates the medium of photography, will be on display from 11 April 2013 – 20 May 2013.
“Since In Toto’s launch in 2010, the gallery has focused on exhibiting both local and international artists from diverse backgrounds and cultures with the aim to share our passion for quality art” states director of the gallery, Jacques Michau.
Artistic methods range from the simple yet exquisite use of pinhole photography created within custom, hand-made cameras to the ancient Alternative Photographic Processes resulting in light-sensitive emulsions that are hand-printed onto paper. Scenes stretch from historical moments that changed the Johannesburg landscape to everyday occurrences within Johannesburg that have been captured in a dramatic light, such as those taken from Michael Meyersfeld’s new “White on Black” series.
The exhibition was co-curated with Michael Meyersfeld, whose years of expertise in the field of photography provided priceless guidance in the selecting of participating artists and artworks.
“In Toto is proud to be hosting this exhibition and the ten photographers’ work are of a world class standard. With photographic subject matter ranging from landscapes viewed on meditative, long-distance walks to the surreal constructed sets that play with the idea of the role of the chimney within the home, to the eerie scenes of small South African towns, Exposure is to be enjoyed by those who are fully immersed in the world of photography as well as those who are eager to begin developing a taste for this dynamic form of fine art,” concludes Jacques Michau, In Toto Gallery (director).
