Abstract:

"Photography Calling! presents the work of some of documentary photography's most accomplished practitioners, including acknowledged masters of the medium William Eggleston, Diane Arbus and Robert Adams; a younger generation of international leaders such as Jeff Wall, Andreas Gursky and Thomas Demand; and emerging photographers such as Laura Bielau. Combining works from the Sprengel Museum Hannover and the collection of the Niedersächsische Sparkassenstiftung, the exhibition and accompanying book show photography in all its power, beauty and ambition. Photography Calling! also has a political motive: to increase the prominence of photography in German museum collections in which it is currently underrepresented. In Thomas Weski's words, Photography Calling! risks 'a precarious balancing act between, on the one hand, surprising the art world and initiating a serious discourse and, on the other, popularizing high-level contemporary artistic photography and making it accessible to a wider audience'.
