Gadefotografi 1917-2017 /3

Overvældende. Imponerende. Jeg skriver med glæde disse rosende ord til citat, hvis det kan få fotografi-interesserede, dokumentarister og/eller rejselystne københavnere eller andre der befinder sig i hovedstaden til at besøge den store udstilling i Øksnehallen, som er åben indtil 1. august. Jeg var der i nogle timer og forlod stedet mæt af indtryk – og jeg skal derind igen. Jeg er slet ikke færdig med Vivian Maier, Krass Clement, min personlige helt Robert Frank, klassikerne Atget, Diane Arbus, Walter Evans, Hans Eijkelboom, Jean Hermanson, Koudelka, Jens-Olof Lasthein, Garry Winogrand. Der er fotos i stort format, der er fotos affotograferet fra bøger, der er film (Robert Frank og Vivian Maier), slideshows, i en stor labyrintisk opsat udstilling, hvor man skal være opmærksom på ikke at miste noget, for der er billeder hvorend du vender dig. ”En hyldest til hverdagen” er undertitlen på udstillingen, jo da, men også til dokumentarismen, til mennesker overalt på kloden, til de mange der har evnet at fange situationer så de er interessante for tilskueren.

Jeg vender tilbage med vurderinger mere om de fotografer, som jeg holdt mest af at være i selskab med.

Gadefotografi 1917-2017, Øksnehallen, København. 28. juni – 1. august, hver dag 10.00 – 20.00, fredag og lørdag 10.00 – 22.00.
