For an anacrusis ten years may be a bit long but LhGWR has probably found itself cocooned in its gallery and wants to fly out now like a butterfly.
Of course that should be respected, but on the other hand it is a bit sad to see a good platform for photography go, as this is LhGWR’s last exhibition in its gallery.
It is sad because LhGWR like no other place in The Hague, and like just maybe a few other places in the country, has shown its audience what style is in contemporary photography.
Style in photography is not stylishness or an aesthetic hype; it is a way of finding balance in a chaotic world, basically by means of looking through a lens.
Photography, as such, is a reflective medium par excellence, both technically and philosophically.
In this last bow LhGWR shows works by ten of its artists with whom they have intensively co-operated through the years.
The exhibition lets the works speak for themselves without bothering much about names and titles (so i stick to that same principle in this case), but to regular visitors they will be recognisable or even familiar.
In the mean time i hope to see and hear more of future initiatives by LhGWR, maybe even in this village of pomp and rubbish.
