Photography is among the most common forms of
visual media
in contemporary society, with photographic artists
constantly
having to rise above past methods to intrigue
viewers.
Rising features 12 emerging artists who go
beyond what is
available to their lenses to construct imaginative,
dream-sourced
images. As young people struggling with the
society and
environment they’re inheriting, they express what
they see
happening in the world. In doing so, they convey
contemporary
and personal issues in allegorical forms, using
choreography,
digital composition and handmade assemblage to
concentrate
narratives into single images.

Curated
by Alice Dixon, with special thanks to Daniel
Ehrenworth.
