Shoot: Existential Photography




The exhibition will open with a collection of anonymous shooting-gallery photographs. These images, ranging from the 1920s to the 1970s, explore not only the shooter’s pose and expression but also those of the people gathered round to view the spectacle and the changing technology used in the process. In almost every picture #7 publisher Erik Kessels displays a series of over sixty self-portraits by Dutch woman, Ria van Dijk, taken at the funfair over a period of eight decades.
