In 2014, DoBeDo contributor Tyrone Lebon made ‘Reely and Truly’, a diaristic and personal documentary about photography.
The 30-minute film is a fast moving study of a diverse range of contemporary photographers, introducing each photographer’s unique practice and investigating their outlooks on the relationship between photography and truth. This exhibition takes its title from the opening of the film and continues to explore the same themes, but at a slower pace in the new context of an exhibition.
“a lie about a lie, a truth about The truth” includes over 30 works from 20 photographers from around the World (Canada, Denmark, India, Japan, South Korea, Thailand, England, and U.S.A.) who have a diverse variety of practices and levels of notoriety.
Some of the photographers, and their photos, in this show are featured in Reely and Truly, others are chosen from DoBeDo.
This exhibition is the part of a touring show that will move from country to country. The next venues will be in London and Tokyo.
Featuring: Alex Sturrock, Asger Carlsen, Chardchakaj Waikawee, Dick Jewell, Evan Prosofsky, Fumiko Imano, Hanna Moon, Harley Weir, Hugo Scott, Jack Day, Jamie Hawkesworth, Jack Webb, Johnny Dufort, Mark Lebon, Max Fowler, Naima Karlsson, Nick Sethi, Phoebe Collings-James, Sean Vegezzi and Takashi Homma.
