NewsBuried Reflections in the Silo – A collective exhibition by Prospekt Photographers

Tbilisi (May 7, 2017) Francesco Merlini, Samuele Pellecchia, Igor Posner and Devin Yalkin, four black&white photographers whose diaristic approach to photography has been recognized worldwide with exhibitions and publications.

Francesco Merlini, Samuele Pellecchia, Igor Posner and Devin Yalkin, four black&white photographers whose diaristic approach to photography has been recognized worldwide with exhibitions and publications.

Four intimacies blended into a collective reflection that aims at using the visual result of their photographic quest in order to deeply explore the process and the meaning of using photography to transform reality into a very personal account of existence that at the same time becomes voice of a collective memory.

The camera can act as magnifier becoming a cognitive filter for personal identities. This method of intimate discovery assigns new notions to human and inanimate subjects, placing it in a new mental and physical space, drastically close and at the same time unexpectedly distant.

These photographs taken in four continents suggest that physical and emotional gaps can be blurred by the gaze of those ones who look for themselves in the eyes of the strangers encountered during their path.

In a time where the boundaries between the documentary narration of stories and the personal representation are more and more subtle, what does it mean to be a diaristic photographer?

Obsessions, memories, recollections and fears, an huge stream of consciousness that shove the audience into a dark galaxy of images sprinkled with bright fragments of vicious emotions and charming honesty.

The exhibition curated by Prospekt, part of the Kolga Tbilisi Photo festival 2017, will display more then 120 prints at the museum Karvasla (museum of the history of Tbilisi). It will open on May 7th 2017 [ Project Manager: Mariam Grigalashvili ]

About Igor Posner

Born in St. Petersburg (Leningrad). Igor Posner moved to California in the early 90s. He studied molecular and cell biology at the University of California Los Angeles, where he first started to take pictures and experiment in the darkroom. Initial infatuation with picture taking led Igor to explore the silent and haunting experience of walking after dark on the streets of Los Angeles and Tijuana. Collision of social and typical with personal and psychological, this first series of images “Nonesuch Records” savors the strange solitude of the enigmatic region between California and Mexico; amid the streets, bars, night shelter hotels, and disappearing night figures. After 14 years, Igor returned to St. Petersburg in 2006, taking up photography full time, which led to a book project Past Perfect Continuous, published by Red Hook Editions, 2017.

At present, Igor is based in New York and working on a long-term project, entitled Cargo, exploring psychological aspects of migration and gradual disappearance of neighborhoods based on Russian immigrant communities in North America. Igor’s work was shown in North America, Europe, Russia, and South East Asia. He joined Prospekt agency in 2011.
