Widephoto offers a program of learning, exchange and debate around innovative proposals in the field of contemporary photography. For that reason, we invite well versed curators and theoreticians to give specially developed presentations, design practice-oriented workshops by photographers who have stood out due to their innovative work process’ and organize informal gatherings around a dinning table to share that knowledge in a relaxed and closer way.
Widephoto is a new initiative by Meeatings23 and Jon Uriarte that bets on new key players, on the evolution of contents and on the experimentation in the various forms by which they are produced, shared and spread.
Taiyo Onorato & Nico Krebs studied photography at the Zurich University of the Arts. The common interest in the manipulation of reality, in the play with proportions and perspectives, led to the amalgamation of the artists as a duo in 2003. In the following years their works were shown at the Kunstmuseum Thun (2006), the Kunsthaus in Aarau (2009) and the Fotomuseum Winterthur (2009), just to mention a few. The duo gained international recognition due to their solo exhibitions at the PS 1 MoMA (2006) and the Swiss Institute (2008) in New York and in the EX 3 Art Centre in Florence (2010).
