2020 Collective

Photography's gestures can often be quiet, humorous and playful, and these small gestures can be the most exceptional. Photography's visuality lends itself to the passing of ideas while its subtlety makes it all the more pressing. Through a collaborative curation of pieces of work by each member, the 2020 Collective seeks to explore photography’s capabilities, to show its stretch and explore its potential as an emotive language. Through a collective dialogue of all our works, we will discuss these emotive potentials photography holds to act as a driver for change, awareness and understanding.
