Photography Section at KÖLNER LISTE 2017
In line with its policy of diversity, the KÖLNER LISTE 2017 proudly presents its Photography Section. Imagined as a special photography show within the art fair, this segment is to serve as an international platform for photography, filled with opportunities for new photographers.
Selected photo artists of keen eye and great talent will be invited to grace the XPOST halls with unique captured images, thus creating a novel community of photographic enthusiasts and creators. With focus on the extraordinary combination of visual quality and innovative approach, we are resolved to bring the most exciting examples of contemporary photography to the public.
On their march through the event, visitors at the KÖLNER LISTE will have the chance to explore this exhibition of contemporary photography. We invite all experienced and novice photography collectors to dive into this pool of photographic marvel and to embark upon the search for the perfect image.
This photography show of the fair will prove to become an ideal starting point for every aspiring photography collector and a pool of novelties for the seasoned connoisseurs. Young artists the organization is eager to support have in the past built successful careers, endorsing the belief that it is best to invest in artists in their early phases, while their work is still affordable.
Whether they are video stills, old-fashioned staged photographs, blurry spurs of the moment or facebook quality photos, images presented at the Photography Section are meant to stun and inspire, serving as both documents and embodiments of events they represent. We look forward to collaborating with artists from culturally diverse backgrounds, hoping to best showcase their individual visions of the world.
Considering some of the renowned names in the art of photography, show will place the emphasis on the younger generations as KÖLNER LISTE 2017 organizers aim to help and collaborate with young artists in finding their position in the market and hopefully – a gallery.
