This group of outstanding young artists and photographers, had given a fresh relieve as these new wave of responsible image-makers which studied hard into their dreams and gave the full-throated ironies and series of hyper-real records of mortalities. Such sheer spectacle or wizardry these visceral beautiful subjects, had paid as homage to the matters at hand. The camera at hand was silent and miming everything it looked at. Photography, as they knew, became less instinctive and predominantly aesthetic or conceptualized. This exhibition was to pull these potentials from the hive of the institution into the world. To dare their fate as image-makers and start to communicate with their images, they began to shift away from being too obsessed with [art] theories and engage deeper and even live with their subjects. Their commitment had then become the theories as mentioned.
“Subject of Dreams” is to form the audience as witnesses of their becoming.
