Exhibition "When Photography Becomes Slow Again"

A satellite show of the Triennial of Photography Hamburg

Calendar / Event |

In the discourse initiated by the Triennial of Photography Hamburg on the topic of position and development of photography in the age of increasing digitalization, this group exhibition draws attention back to the past.

The combination of historical photographic processes with modern technology creates pieces, whose aesthetic is reminiscent of the beginnings of photography, yet current in their imagery and pictoral themes. In a world of digital imagery, that has become natural to us and in which we produce billions of images daily, the historical processes demand an intensive examination of each individual motif and result in a re-­individualization of the particular image.


  • J. Konrad Schmidt shows ambrotypes: „Black Is the Color of my True Love´s Hair"
  • Ralph von Kaufmann shows intagliotypes: „Urban Details"
  • Oliver Rolf shows ambrotypes: „Handwerker — Künstler — Künstler — Handwerker"
  • Hendrik Faure shows copperplate photogravures: „no future will come"

The exhibition does not only cover the pieces themselves but also the process of their creation. Lectures on the technical details and historical context as well as demonstrations of the procedure enable a deeper insight on the photographers work with historical techniques.
