EXIT 89 . Movimiento

A popular phrase warns us that "movement is demonstrated by walking", which is not entirely true, because there are many variations on the idea of movement. In this 89th issue of EXIT we take a look at some names, some classic, some new, trying to show examples of how photography strives to emerge from immobility without moving, without ceasing to be a photograph. People, landscapes, the sky, the sea, nature, the city... Photography and photographers strive to subtly show the latent movement of life, of the world.

EXIT 89 Movement brings together the work of up to fifteen photographers who, from different perspectives, are representative of the theme. The central text, signed by the curator Carlos Gollonet, proposes a brief, but very well documented, history of the relationship between photography and movement. This writing exercise is illustrated by the work of prestigious photographers, including Etienne-Jules Marey, Duane Michals, Nicholas Nixon and Eadweard J. Muybridge, among others. In the dossier section, we present the work of eight photographers. Greg Anthon, Sanna Kannisto and Yuki Onodera use the same motif - birds - to investigate the link between photography and movement; all of them, despite sharing the same subject matter, have completely different approaches and perspectives. Hans-Christian Schink's long-exposure photographs attempt to capture the apparent movement of the sun, which is nothing more than the earth's own rotation. Corinne Vionnet and Michael Wesely focus on the movement of the crowd, also using different techniques and conceptual approaches. Ricardo Sánchez, for his part, explores the movement of the animal and man in the bullfighting tradition. Finally, Jonathan Shaw, who until now has devoted much of his career to exploring the possibilities of movement in photography, presents some of his work centred on basketball and ballet.

In Portfolio, the section in which we give space to the most interesting photographers of the new generations, we present Miia Autio, Mark Duffy, Maria Jou Sol, Douglas Mandry and Simone Sapienza.
