A commentary on life

2015-05-08, 11:00 a.m.
The exhibition “Traces of People” is an attempt to create a photographic image of contemporary cities. Challenged by new contexts, unorthodox visual experiences and unfamiliar cultural identity, Cristiano Mascaro and Sławomir Rumiak have produced visual commentaries on reality which has been subjected to turbulent transformations. Throughout the 20th century, photography has been used as a means to talk about the world. However, it has also become an instrument of social and political critique. The lecture will introduce the works and achievements of such photographers as Lewis Hine, Walker Evans or Rune Eraker whose visual reportages powerfully contributed to a debate on injustice and complexity of human life.
