ArtSlant - Recently added en-us 40 Grit Schwerdtfeger - Corkin Gallery - May 7th - May 30th <p>Please join us on Thursday May 7, from 5-8pm to celebrate the opening of Grit Schwerdtfeger's exhibition.&nbsp;<br />Refreshments will be provided, and the artist will be in attendance.&nbsp;<br /><br />"Ten" is a Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival featured exhibition.&nbsp;<br /><br />Over a one-year period, German photographer Grit Schwerdtfeger took photographs of her ten-year-old son, Lorenz. What began as Lorenz's idea to see himself develop evolved into a contemporary document; the photographs demonstrate the closeness and distance between mother and son. By integrating the photograph into their daily routine, the excitement and desire of sitting for the photo lapsed. The action became equivalent to any other daily task, performed without question or desire, and sometimes with aggravation, simply out of necessity.</p> <p><a class="twitter-timeline-link" title="" dir="ltr" href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" data-expanded-url="">;</a></p> Thu, 30 Apr 2015 18:11:44 +0000
