Limited Edition Siilk Photo Cards
Limited Edition (1000) 4×6 photo card print packs created during the “Covid-19” pandemic to support photographers and the gallery in keeping its platform and operations running throughout this time.
As you’re probably aware, the lockdown around the corona virus is proving to be a challenge for many galleries and businesses in the arts.
The Siilk Gallery is no exception. We had exciting plans in motion for the coming months, which have all had to be put on hold. Like many others, our running costs are still there, while our opportunities to earn income have been taken away.
As a result, to keep our platform going through this period of uncertainty, we’ve decided to move ahead with some plans we already had for a limited edition series of photo card print packs. Sales of these will help support the gallery and our photographers through the pandemic.
Each postcard pack contains 8 photographic post cards and are a one off limited edition run of prints (1000). We appreciate each and every sale since it helps keeps us going during this time.
- World wide shipping included in the price. Works by photographers Sven Kräuter, Andrea D’Auria, Daniel Peace & Moritz Jekat.
• Sven Kräuter lives in Neukölln and works on local and international photo projects. In the core his photography evolves around the urban human condition. How do we live in big cities? What do we have in common all over the world? How do certain quarters change over time? In search of answers, Sven Kräuter delivers observations in the form of moments and juxtapositions. His photographs have been exhibited in Germany, Europe and the USA, including at D&AD in London as part of the London Street Photography Symposium and at the Harvey Milk Photo Center in San Francisco.
• Ludovico Andrea D’Auria is an Italian photographer born in Rome and now based in London. For many years Andrea has documented the underground scenes of each city, capturing their raw beauty and essence.
The starting point of D’Auria’s career was in Berlin, where for the first time he felt the need to document his surroundings as a reaction to a deadlock.
Through photography, D’Auria discovered the means to reach a deep and reflexive inner catharsis and often returns to the theme of outcasts, which he refers to as being an unavoidable subject within his work, he gives special attention to the aesthetics of his work and this is what makes his photography unique.
D’Auria previously worked as a curator and a graphic designer, and now as a photographer, he is an active eyewitness and participant in the environments he documents.
In his works, ethics, aesthetics and intimate connections merge to create an impactful and relational photograph displaying tones that oscillate between escapism and a revival of identity.
• Daniel Peace quickly received acclaim as a London based Emerging photographer when he started shooting in 2015. Hi initial works were published by independent magazines such as Féroce, Notion and Noctis in 2015 as well as subsequently gaining exhibition at Hoxton Gallery and the Royal academy of Art even though he had only just starting creating imagery.
