There are as many ways to tell a story as there are storytellers. But how does the photographer deal with a narrative as a starting point and how does this relate to the final presentation of the work? This question forms the basis for the exhibition curated by Fw:. The exhibition shows projects by photographers where notions as documentation, narration, abstraction and presentation play an important role. Is the subject seen purely objective? Can one stage events afterwards to tell what that he/she wants to tell? How and where to put the emphasis? Does the actual narrative evolve while working on it, or is it prescribed? And: does one present the story exclusively on the wall, in a book, or as supplement to a newspaper?
