Damian Chrobak - Private View - theprintspace Gallery
Thu 23 March 2017, 19:30 – 22:00 GMT
theprintspace gallery is proud to announce the official opening of 'Everywhere I look, I’m being looked at', an exhibition by photographer, Damian Chrobak.
The 'Everywhere I look, I’m being looked at' series is centred on consumerism and the idea that wanting, and spending, controls our lives. A selection of black and white photographs depict street situations that also feature advertisements, magazine covers, newspapers and billboards.
As well as showing everyday life in an urban environment, the photographs reflect how tightly visual media now surrounds us. The real, and metaphorical, eyes that watch passers-by in Damian Chrobak’s photographs remind us about the influence of media and advertising in contemporary life.
Street photography itself is characterised by the artists’ skill and sensitivity in documenting insight into the aesthetic, psychological and sociological elements of the scenes recorded. Out of today’s non-stop visual stimulation, the photographer picks out seemingly insignificant moments in order to reveal their real importance.
Join us for the official opening on Thursday 23rd March from 7.30pm - 10pm. Limited guestlist, please RSVP to secure your place.
Entrance is free and drinks will be provided. We look forward to welcoming you to theprintspace Gallery.
