Photography is an ever-changing medium that will continue to shift in different directions in the future. Developments such as digitalisation and the rise of social media are a huge influence on these changes. Photography students will, looking at their future, have to actively stay tuned to these developments. What does photography as a medium mean to them, and how can they engage with the medium to translate contemporary issues into images?
With this in mind, 22 finalists and 3 winners were selected for Blurring the Lines 2019, chosen from the submissions of graduating photography students from a range of academies worldwide. Curators Lisanne van Happen and Steve Bisson were very impressed by the high quality of the submmitted work this year.
Works by the three winners, Roberto Vico D’Amico, Irene Antonia Diane Reece and Viktor Naumovski will be exhibited in Espace F15 during Paris Photo upcoming November.
The following finalists were selected:
Petri Juntunen, Jessica Bizzoni, Fleur Jakobs, Isa De Jong, Efrat Jacobovich, Arthur Lehmann, Dalia Hussein, Giselle Hinterholz, Gabi Campos, Raquel Santos, Roberta Capaldi, Hjordis Eythorsdottir, Alexey Vasiliev, Elena Ovchinnikova, Ilka Pappenscheller, Merve Terzi, Julia Gat, Sofiya Pankevich, Frédérique Scholtes, Jonna Bruinsma, Boris Lutters, and Tibor Dieters. Their work will be displayed in the catalogue of this year. We hope to see you all at the opening of Blurring the Lines and at the presentation of the catalogue in Espace F15 (PCA, 15 Rue Fénelon 75010 Paris). Prior to the opening, Laia Abril will be speaking about her work “Hidden Realities”.
Blurring the Lines is a collaboration between Paris College of Art, Urbanautica and FOTODOK.
