Photography as Propaganda

Photography as Propaganda

Politics and the Utopian Dream

Lumière

The exhibition illustrated how artistic expression and creativity can coexist with photography’s ability to abstract time and space, providing a potent vehicle with which to communicate a point of view.

Whether migrating a nation to a utopian social and economic order or framing public policy debates, the power of the photographic image was used effectively in the 20th Century by both totalitarian and democratic leaders.

This exhibition illustrated its’ power to inform and influence. It reminded us of the future impact potential of imagery to amplify ideas using an array of new electronic technologies.

Including photography by: Boris Ignatovich, Dorothea Lange, Yevgeny Khaldei, Peter Sekaer, Ivan Shagin John Gutmann, Alexandr Ustinov, Rondal Partridge, Max Alpert & Georgi Zelma

The Kickstarter for the Harold Feinstein film, Last Stop Coney Island, is still just shy of their fundraising goal, and there are only 40 hours to go before their Kickstarter campaign ends. Please consider supporting; besides a DVD copy, there are amazing rewards for backers.

We're so close now! If we hit our target, we'll start producing DVDs worthy of a place on your shelves. The campaign closes in the early hours of Friday, UK time, so unless you're a real night owl, Thursday will be your last chance to preorder the DVD. https://t.co/ELbgsy3LoK
