Ever wondered what the people in old photographs might have been thinking or why they often look so serious? Historical photographs can tell us a lot about the moment of their making, giving us glimpses into the architecture, decor, clothing, hierarchies and customs prevalent at the time. But what do they leave out?
Join us for a special interactive walkthrough of What The Camera Didn’t See led by the artist, Alexander Gorlizki. The exhibition brings together 23 artworks by Alexander Gorlizki and the Pink City Studio that reimagines the boundaries between photography and miniature painting, in response to photographs in the MAP collection. Learn more from the artist directly about the vivid imaginations that travel far beyond the frame of the camera lens and encounter a new, fresh and unique perspective on the past.
