The exhibition 'Instant Gratification' is a show of evolving work, consisting of a variety of photography styles including images taken via cell phone cameras utilising software such as Hipstamatic.
What attracted these artists to this digital technology is the lack of control one has over the resulting image, and the immediacy of being able to share them. It will be interesting to see the results taken by all four photographers in Barcelona—sometimes of the same subject or location in the city—and how their different perspectives on gratification show up in the photos. Barcelona is an apt location to exhibit this work, as the tempo of the city and the hedonist late-night lifestyle satisfies those who seek 'Instant Gratification'.
The artists will continue to add to the exhibit during the days after the opening, so it will be a growing display of work shot and printed immediately.
The artists' biographies appear on the HyperOptik Creative website.
The exhibition opening will take place on Thursday 12th April at 7.30pm.
