From October 19th 2016 to January 8th 2017
Opening: wednesday 19th October at 7 p.m.
Talent Latent 2016 shows the work of ten artists who represent some of the emerging values of international contemporary photographic creation. Selected after having reviewed the work of hundreds of artists, these ten photographers offer us an interesting panorama of some of the main stylistic lines and thematic areas in which this creation moves. From different parts of the world they have created projects with an outstanding personal stamp and authorship. There can be no doubt that these projects merit being presented and championed by SCAN Tarragona 2016, a festival whose main idea is to distinguish and promote the photography of new, highly talented, international artists.
Logically, the selection we present here in no way aspires to be an ideal summary of contemporary photography. Such an aspiration would be as absurd as it is impossible. Therefore, our only wish is to invite you, no more (and no less), to enjoy the stimulating contribution made to that current photography by our ten artists with their excellent projects. You can find the value of Talent Latent 2016 in the diversity of subjects dealt with in the different projects and the variety of proposals and approaches to the photographic medium made by our artists. We already know that to attempt to schematically classify current photography may be an obsolete idea; however, strictly for information purposes, we can tell you that in our exhibition you will see reportage photography (classic and contemporary), unmanipulated documental photography, staged or constructed photography, portraits, self-portraits, landscapes, personal diaries, intimate photography, protest photography, etc.
