ANOTHER KIND OF LIFE

Another Kind of Life: Photography on the Margins looks at the continuing fascination of artists with those on the margins of society through the photographic medium. Some of the most powerful images of the 20th and 21st century are the result of a determined and often prolonged engagement with communities seemingly at odds with, or on the fringes of, the mainstream. Another Kind of Life explores photography’s relationship with this compelling subject through the work of 20 exceptional image-makers, including Bruce Davidson, Paz Errázuriz, Casa Susanna, Larry Clark, Mary Ellen Mark, Boris Mikhailov, Daido Moriyama and Dayanita Singh.

The main exhibition space is divided into 7 rooms to allow each photographer’s work to speak for itself. From above, the design looks like a small town with volumes of different heights and singular roof openings. The layout plays with timidly lit thresholds in between the exhibition spaces that allow the visitors to walk in and out of the rooms as analogy to the margins of society.
