Photography Calling! presents the work of some of documentary photography’s most accomplished practitioners, including acknowledged masters of the medium William Eggleston, Diane Arbus and Robert Adams; a younger gener- ation of international leaders such as Jeff Wall, Andreas Gursky and Thomas Demand; and emerging photographers such as Laura Bielau. Combining works from the Sprengel Museum Hannover and the collection of the Niedersa¨chsische Sparkassenstiftung, the exhibition and accompanying book show photography in all its power, beauty and ambition. Photography Calling! also has a political motive: to increase the prominence of photography in German museum collections in which it is currently underrepresented. In Thomas Weski’s words, Photography Calling! risks “a precari- ous balancing act between, on the one hand, surprising the art world and initiating a serious discourse and, on the other, popularizing high-level contemporary artistic photography and making it accessible to a wider audience”.
