HMA6: Curates!

by Heather on April 26, 2012

What?

That’s right- HMAb is entering the world of curation with a show at PIKTO in June. Check out the lovely poster designed by uber talented Katina Constantinou featuring a wicked shot by Rodrigo Daguerre:

I’m super excited that PIKTO has invited me to curate a show in their gallery space. This is a completely new experience for me and so it was important to show not only shooters that I admired, but work that may have been overlooked.

In this case, I’ve chosen 6 photographers who have work that ties loosely to a theme of youth. There will be wide variety in the show: still life shooter Natasha V is providing an interpretation, Derek Shapton is showing landscapes, Lee Towndrow has shot a theatrical and inverted take on youth culture. Mark Peckmezian is well known for his B&W snapshots of sexy young things, Johan Hallberg-Campbell’s brings back portraits of young people from Attawapiskat and newcomer Rodrigo Daguerre has a stylized yet classic approach to his portraiture.

Watch this space for more work from these shooters and background on the show itself.
