THE STREET OUR GALLERY
Unofficial street exhibition
There is nothing more satisfying than to feel the weight of a print on your hand, to enjoy the image on front of you, a beautiful object by itself, in an era where photography and the visual arts have been reduced to the banality of consumer culture, seen and forgotten five minutes later.
Leave it for others to see it, or take it home, your decision.
Our streets, our public spaces, are there to daily celebrate that we are not alone in this world, a place where we talk, we laugh, we enjoy, we cry, we joke, with strangers…
Let keep them out of private and corporate control.
