Nofound to New Documents

Nofound to New Documents #1 is a travelling exhibition (on-line/off-line) curated by young photography intensive seeker Emeric Glayse. The exhibition is based on the website Nofound he founded a couple of years ago. The idea was to show unedited, intimate and diary snapshots pictures, mostly of young emerging photographers, and from a few more established ones.

From the web to the exhibition space, the show will evolve with time and space, with a first stop in London  at Viktor Wynd Fine Art. This art gallery is also a place to find all sorts of travel discoveries and treasures from collector Victor Wynd, which reminds of Emeric’s work, spending extensive time seeking images on the internet. This first subjective retrospective materializes an obsessional relationship Emeric has with photography and photographers, based on sensitivity and a powerful desire to discover. A matter of feelings.

The exhibition name is a wink to John Szarkowski’s exhibition New Documents, one of the first museum exhibition dedicated to snapshot photography, with the works Lee Friedlander, Diane Arbus and Garry Winogrand (Moma, 1967). The photos were exhibited as a line of small framed prints. A concept that shapes Nofound to New Documents #1 ‘s installation, and a way to link with the original blogroll structure of Nofound.

The new website dedicated to the exhibiton will also be an evolving space and a base for the future exhibitions. This makes Nofound to new document a refreshing in progress curatorial project.
