Expositie Pride Photo Award
|Datum:||1 november 2019|
|Straat:||Hannie Dankbaarpassage 12|
Welcome to the Pride Photo Award 2019 exhibition, the seventh edition of the international photography contest about sexual and gender diversity. Come and join us to view the 2019 winners throughout the month of November in De Hallen Amsterdam, in Amsterdam West.
Our larger-than-life exhibition will wow you with the winning photos suspended from the ceiling, and intimate, interactive booths showing more images!
PLAY TOY, by South Korean photographer Seungwook YANG, wins the 2019 edition. Showing two identical action figures posed as if they are kissing, on a colourful flower-print cloth, the image reminds us of acting out romantic fantasies as a child. Using male superheroes, Seungwook YANG subtly hints at LGBTQ+ children being heroes themselves. The vibrant image turns an act that might be reprimanded out of the shadows of shame and into the spotlight as a celebration of love.
