MANUEL RIVERA-ORTIZ FOUNDATION
HOPE, A COLLABORATIVE PERSPECTIVE
2 July - 23 September
10H00 - 19H00
HOPE, a Collaborative Perspective explores the formal possibilities of the image as document and the document as an agent of knowledge and understanding of contemporary issues. HOPE presents photography as an experience, a sharing. It presents the work of people who have chosen to create images, sometimes in parallel with their professions, to influence their lives and environment. Photographers are not merely witnesses, but become actors, using all the means available to them: from camera to smartphone, from artist’s book to Instagram collection. Exploring this exhibition will be a ritual, sometimes solemn, sometimes playful, always heartfelt, for awareness is inseparable from emotion and study. Refusing to categorize the world through an established documentary esthetic, the Fondation Manuel Rivera-Ortiz shares with you the creative energy of the international documentary scene.
