Tomorrow’s Photographers Today
What are young photographers up to in the twenty-first century? How do they see the world? How much do they respect, build on, or reject tradition? As the digital revolution continues its relentless advance, demolishing longstanding practices in every domain of our field, curiosity builds as to how the new generation of photographers will operate. The reGeneration project—the broadest and most enterprising survey of its kind—set out in 2005 to discover answers to these intriguing questions, while revealing emerging photography in wide-ranging fashion. Following on the success of the original exhibition, which was shown in ten different cities across North America, Europe, and Asia, the latest edition turns the spotlight on eighty up-and-coming talents from thirty countries.
The Musée de l’Elysée selected the most promising candidates from some seven-hundred entries submitted by 120 of the world’s top photography schools. reGeneration2 showcases the inspiring creativity and ingenuity of photographers at the outset of their careers, as they navigate in the fast-moving currents of the second decade of the twenty-first century. Curated by William A. Ewing and Nathalie Herschdorfer. Produced by the Musee de l’Elysee, Lausanne, in collaboration with the Aperture Foundation, New York, with the support of Pro Helvetia and the Consulate General of Switzerland in New York.
