All About Photo presents ‘Unseen’ by Daniel Sackheim. Part of the exclusive online showroom developed by All About Photo, this exhibition is on view for the month of April 2023 and includes twenty photographs from the series ‘Unseen’
As a child, I was terrified of the dark. So fearful was I of what could be hiding under the bed, or lurking within the dark recesses of my closet, that I regularly slept with the light on. The irony is not lost on me that I now find myself inexplicably drawn to the back streets and dark alleyways of anonymous cities to the point of obsession. This curiosity is rooted in a need to dig at the surface to discover what lies just beneath it, unseen. Inspired by the film language of Noir. This body of work explores isolated fragments of subjects once there but now gone, as a means of shining a light on what is hidden, if only for an instant.
In this moment of great uncertainty, these online Solo Exhibitions aim to continue to connect audiences and artists, building on our beliefs that access to art and culture is a right and not a privilege and that artists’ voices should be heard. It is a platform to help photographers pursue their visions, their dreams, and their projects.
With our new online showroom space, we’ve established All About Photo’s role as a supporter and amplifier of creative ideas.
