Photo Club Riga
21.6. – 2.7.
opening: 18.6., 4–7 pm
Although still life could be sometimes considered the lowest rung of the
hierarchy of genres in art, it can nevertheless show us the beauty of nature,
symbols of religion, politics, wealth, consumption and mortality. What nowadays
constitutes a good photography is clearly defined by Photo Club Riga and the
debate about the inclusion of photography among the arts is redundant. As
we are left to consider the question how “still life” photography will continue to find its worth
and purpose in the future.
