The Amazing Analogue: How we play photography Brighton Photo Biennial Exhibition
- 4 October 2014 — 3 March 2015 *on now
Young imaginations take centre stage in an exhibition of inspiring, joyful and curious images.
German photographer Jan von Holleben collaborates with young people from Brighton & Hove and employs perspective, props and a box of
tricks that owes much to the early film pioneers celebrated in Hove Museum’s extraordinary collection.
Exploring a mysterious archive of unidentified slides and negatives, Jan and his young team set out to discover what the strange images might depict, and to construct incredible machines that might help to analyse them.
'Everything is possible [in my work] - we can fly to a distant universe, build machines that can otherwise only be dreamt of, see ghosts, or shrink ourselves to dwarf-size
there are no limits apart from our own responsibilities and skills. This is how we play photography.' Jan von Holleben
This exhibition is a Photoworks and Brighton & Hove Museums co-commission for Brighton Photo Biennial 2014.
