Opening today at the Hotshoe Gallery in London is a group exhibition of photographic works, all based on the theme of the ‘ephemeral’…

Photography by its nature is centred around capturing the ephemeral, the freezing of a fleeting moment in time. The show at Hotshoe, curated jointly by Hotshoe’s Daniel Campbell Blight and Brad Feuerhelm of Ordinary-Light Photography, aims to explore the notion of this passing gesture in more detail, via works drawn from a variety of sources. These include images by contemporary artists Rut Blees Luxemburg, Ori Gersht and David Maisel, alongside vintage works, such as the Roger Schall shot of Soho in London shown below, which was taken in 1935.

Soho, Roger Schall, 1935

Library of Dust 2257, David Maisel, 2005-6

Falling Bird II, Ori Gersht, 2008

On The Ephemeral In Photography will continue until March 5. More info is at hotshoegallery.com.
