Back and Forth, Pingyao Festival

Back and Forth is an exhibition of ten artists who have recently passed through the IED Madrid school: five of them as students, the other half, as teachers. It is also a selection of works that reflect the world we live in, from the point of view of contemporary lens-based art. Needless to say that there are common subjects, such as landscapes and still-lives, portraits and street-life. However, all of the participating artists make use of a visual language that combines formal clarity, technical brilliance and a sound understanding of what photography is, or might be, in the second decade of the twenty-first century.
