Photography Never Dies. History and future of photographic medium

17 November 2016 – 5 January 2017
Place: Gallery at the Main Train Station, ul. Piłsudskiego 105


The exhibition is devoted to photography and presents its history form the moment of its inception. Apart from renowned authors and curators such as Erik Kassels or Volker Hinz, the audience will have an opportunity to view archival daguerreotypes, carte de visite which will be presented together with the contemporary amateur photos from Instagram or Flickr.

Photography Never Dies is a project dedicated to photography and its history. It is not an encyclopedic or historical study but rather a metaphorical illustrated story about the photographic medium. The presentation consists of photographic icons from the last 177 years, as well as archive photographs and contemporary amateur snapshots from social media. Next to the works of recognized artists and curators, such as Erik Kessels, Catherine Balet, Francesca Seravalle and Volker Hinz we can discover unknown images from private collections. Despite the death of photography as we know it, the idea of preserving reality in still images has survived and is flourishing more strongly than ever. Technology may change, but photography is not dead yet.
