Shoot existential photography
Images by Ria van Dijk and Beauvoir Sartre.
 
The Photographers Gallery is launching a new exhibition called Shoot! Existential Photography.

The exhibition focuses on pictures taken at photo shooting galleries. These galleries were fairground attractions, and when the user fired at a bullseye, it triggered a camera to photograph their reaction.

The metaphorical charge of the activity is obvious—upon looking at their portrait the shooter sees the gun, still trained in their hands a moment after its discharge, aimed at themselves. Shoot! Existential Photography will investigate these numerous analogies between taking photographs and shooting. Showcasing vernacular and vintage images alongside contemporary pieces, the exhibition will trace back the history of this image making process from its days as a popular sideshow to its re-appropriation by various artists.

The exhibition is on from the 12 October – 6 January 2013.
