Pedro Meyer’s Heresies Exhibitions in Pakistan

This October 2008, 60 museums and art spaces around the world are showcasing Pedro Meyer’s Heresies Exhibition around the world. Karachi’s The Second Floor is the venue for Pakistan to be exhibiting this fabulous exhibition, a retrospective comprising of four decades of groundbreaking work by one of the world’s most innovative photographer.

” Mexican photographer Pedro Meyer is as renowned for his powerful and provocative photographs as he is for his pioneering work with digital imaging. Meyer’s photographs consistently test the limits of truth, fiction and reality. With the advent of digital photography in the early 1990s, Meyer evolved from a documentary photographer who created so-called “straight photographs” into a digital-documentarian who often combines photographic elements from disparate times and places to arrive at a different or higher truth.

 Meyer’s oft- expressed contention that all photographs — digitally manipulated or not — are equally “true” and “untrue” has been labeled “heretical” in the orthodox documentary photography community. Hence the title Heresies. ”


Starting October 21, the Heresies Exhibition at the second Floor will continue for six weeks. The photographs on display will be changes every two weeks for the duration of the exhibition while a 40″ LCD display will be running a slideshow of Pedro Meyer photographs.

Also in the duration of these six weeks a series of workshops and panel discussions featuring Pakistan leading photographers including Amean J, Farah Mahbub and other photographers and journalists, the details of which are here will be the part of the whole even.

The exhibition is a blessing for photographers and specially for people studying communication designs, fine arts or advertising and a must to visit for every art and photography enthusiast.
