ABC Photography, The Exhibit


The V&A Museum of Childhood in London, features, until the 4th of June, 2017, ABC Photography: an exhibit of 26 photographs, by 26 photographers… an alphabet of images introducing children to the art of photography, using key words and philosophical witticisms featuring established and younger acclaimed photographers. The list includes Martin ParrWolfgang TillmansNan GoldinAlec SothPeter LindberghChristopher BucklowDenis DarzacqThekla EhlingBela BorsodiDoug DuboisSylvie ZijlmansAchim LippothRoger BallenJohn MacLean
Neetha MadaharChristoph NiemannBenne OchsSimon RobertsJulian RöderSebastião SalgadoWalter SchelsSascha Weidner,  Tim Walker.
This display is based on a book by photographer and book maker Jan von Holleben, with text by Monte Packham, recently published by Berlin-based publishing house Tarzipan Books.
ABC Photography links the medium of photography with the rest of the world: each letter of the alphabet introduces an image alongside a key word from the field of photography (art, exposure, landscape, time and so on…) as well as a simple and playful explanation of the word that inspires and goes beyond the medium.
