Album Beauty

Erik Kessels 'Album Beauty'is a short documentary on show at QUAD until the end of May. The documentary, shot on location at QUAD on the opening day of FORMAT13, tells the story behind some of the pictures on display and was filmed, directed, produced and edited by Paul Green of Green Peak.

Album Beauty, an exhibition of found photographs curated by Erik Kessels, is an ode to the vanishing era of the photo album. Once commonplace in every home, the photo-album has been replaced by the digital age where images are now jpegs and live online and in hard drives. These visual narratives are testament to the once universal appeal to document and display the mundane. Often a repository for family history, they usually represent a manufactured family as edited for display. The albums speak of birth, death, beauty, sexuality, pride, happiness, youth, competition, exploration, complicity and friendship.

Erik Kessels: Album Beauty is curated by Erik Kessels in collaboration with Foam Amsterdam.
