Screen Capture: A girl in this world exhibition is online!

January 31, 2018

We would like to extend a big thank you to all the photographers taking part in our first Screen Capture exhibition: A girl in this world, and of course to the Playtime team for their wonderful help and support. Throughout the three days of the show visitors snapped and shared the exhibition. At this critical time how we define what it is to be a girl seems to be more relevant than ever. So to see the Playtime visitors engage with the subject through the imagery and words of the photographers was inspiring.

Playtime Paris has now sadly come to an end but you can catch the exhibition at the New York edition taking place February 11th-13th at Metropolitan Pavilion & Altman Building. If you can’t make New York or you want an opportunity to look over the exhibition again the good news is that the web version is now online!  Continue Reading
