AboutDr Karanka's Print Stravaganza at London Photomonth
In October, the itinerant photography show Dr Karanka's Print Stravaganza will be exhibited in London Photomonth. The Stravaganza started as an open call for photographers who wanted to show in a number of self organized exhibitions in different countries. Hundreds of photographs sent from all over the world, and previously displayed in Italy and France will be shown at The Others from the 9th of October till the 1st of November.
The first exhibition of Dr Karanka's Print Stravaganza was organised by Joni Karanka at the New Park Liberal Club in Cardiff. After a few weeks of an open call for organising a local show, more than sixty photographers had submitted their prints to be displayed without expecting any remuneration. After the success of the original show, the photographs started a trip that would take them to XM24 in Bologna (Italy), Arles (France), Gliwice (Poland) and now London. On the way, new photographers have added their work to the show that keeps growing in new and unexpected directions. The variety of the exhibition spaces used and the involvement of local organizers for each show gives Dr Karanka's Print Stravaganza a unique DIY aspect, bringing photography directly from the artists to the viewers at minimal cost.
The current exhibition at The Others will be the largest Stravaganza to this date and is part of Photomonth: East London Photography festival 2009, and will include not only photographs, but also slideshows and music.
