Nathan Dvir's "Platforms" exhibition at the Belgrade Month of Photography

June 02, 2021 | Ivana Nedeljković

An exhibition of works Platform Israeli photographer Nathan Dvir will be open on May 25th at 19 pm in the Youth Center in Belgrade, as part of the current edition of the event Belgrade Month of Photography (Belgrade Photo Month) which is held at several locations in Belgrade. After the opening, visitors will be able to visit the exhibition from Tuesday to Saturday from 12 am to 9 pm and on Sunday from 12 noon to 6 pm, until June 4.

The platforms represent a research series of the unique underground architecture of New York , which is passed through every day, ie. in which he is temporarily residing. Metro platforms, viewed from the point of view of passengers from opposite sides, represent a voyeuristic experience precisely cut by the architecture of the space. The platform becomes a stage where the actors take their temporary seats before the train arrives, summoning the next act.

Combining voyeurism and photography and using the advantages of subway architecture, the series reflects alienation, separation, personal space, individualism, loneliness and the transient connection of the underground passages of the urban megalopolis.     

This year's festival is held in compliance with all measures of the Government of the Republic of Serbia and the Crisis Staff for the Suppression of Infectious Diseases Covid-19.

The Belgrade Month of Photography was organized for the first time in 2016, and this year's edition is the fifth in a row. The success of the festival is based on three strong pillars: the quality of the domestic photography scene, cooperation with art foundations, museums, galleries and all foreign cultural centers and embassies in Belgrade, as well as contacts and cooperation with other international events that give Serbian photographers a chance to present their work. abroad, bringing foreign photographers to Belgrade.
