Photography Exhibition- Kamilo Nollas "Mobile in NY"

Καμίλο Νόλλας. Mobile in NY / Εν κινήσει στη Νέα Υόρκη
The exhibition presents 54 colour photographs shot in New York by Kamilo Nollas, using his cell phone, during the period 2009 – 2010, when he lived there as a Fulbright Scholar. He utilised this medium, on the one hand, in order to have a camera permanently with him, on the other hand, in order to ascertain whether digital technology could bring about the same renewal of the arts, as that brought about by the construction of the first Leica in 1925.
The photographs, on the surface, appear similar to those taken by amateur photographers on an everyday basis on their cell phones. However, the artist, in arraying the images in the exhibition, sought to set up a short lesson in photography, showing what is and what is not worth photographing. His frames aren’t usually formally balanced, and are full of characteristic fluidity, constant motion and alternating images.
As a photographer, who has the obligation to return the images he “took”, he exhibits the personal and decisive moments he experienced in New York.
