Space and Photography

Space is a sensory form and necessary condition for the perception of external matter. Photography is a medium devoted to external appearance but traditionally two-dimensional. The camera lens has no three-dimensional vision. It distorts space and can depict aspects of space in a two-dimensional medium only as a result of trained, synchronized seeing habits and compensatory technical devices. The conception of space has been a theme in photography since its earliest days. It addresses the formal and contextual aspects, conceals its own technical shortcomings by means of new ways of seeing, and develops its own pictorial space. This exhibition looks at the virtual and constructed space and at photography as a spatial concept, with international photographic ideas being shown alongside works from the Museum der Moderne Salzburg collection.
