Copenhagen calling. Ozon is invited by the network of Copenhagen Fashion Fairs and is media partner of Terminal 2 and CPH Vision trade-shows. The Wanderer is a photo exhibtion that Ozon has created and now presents in Terminal 2, a show curated by independent curator and art critic Iliana Fokianaki. Seven photographers reflect through their work the feeling of contemporary slackers, the wanderers within the urban scene. Here is the actual press release;
I want to wander in the city. I want to be inspired. I want to be lost. I want to be naughty. I want to forget everything. I want to be absorbed by the city. I want to stop and admire my surroundings. I want to hide. I want to lose my identity. I want to observe. I want to stop thinking and just look. I want to go underground.
This exhibition is an ode to those who leave home and instead choose to wander through the city. This journey could last a mere moment or an infinite amount of time. Reminiscent of the way Charles Baudelaire would describe the way the Beat Generation would simply just live life. These images are chosen due to the fact that they can: illustrate, represent and reminisce the character of The Wanderer. The Wanderer is a selection of various photographs that have been published or are about to be published in Ozon magazine. Images are created by an international network of fashion photographers who currently collaborate with Ozon. Street spirit is captured in cities such as Amsterdam, Athens, Barcelona, Bratislava, Helsinki, Milan, Paris and Stockholm.
