This “Broken Chord” series came about after a visit to Wrocław, a Polish city designated as European Capital of Culture in 2016. Poland’s borders have been redrawn numerous times over the years and, along with Hungary, it was one of the first members of the Eastern Bloc to embrace democracy.
For his first exhibition featuring monochrome photographs, Hamada produced both straight prints and double exposures created using dual enlargers. By trading in color for black and white and through the mix of straight and double-exposed prints he has succeeded in reproducing the invisible reality lurking just below our own–“the passage of time and the memories of the city itself.” Approximately 40 gelatin silver prints will be exhibited.
