PHOTOGRAPHY | Until 7
September | East Gallery
The exhibition features photographs
from the Pretoria Art Museum’s permanent collection – from traditional film
photography to modern digital print.
Arguments against photography being an
art form date back more than a century. Many photographs have been recognised
for their high artistic value, with the camera used like a painter’s brush and
artistic merit attributed to factors such as composition, exposure, tonal
values, ingenuity and creativity. Well-known photographers such as Zwelethu Mthetwa,
Constance Stuart-Larrabee, David
Goldbaltt, Ismail Farouk and Nataniël Stern are included in the exhibition.
