Matthias Hvass Borello on the question about why he agreed to jury and co-curate the exhibition, and what he expects to experience:
“The art of photography is still one of the younger rapidly developing media of art, and of where the boundaries are constantly negotiable. This makes the medium and the field extremely interesting to dive into. I hope to have my view on photography affected, and I hope to gain insights into where the field is currently moving towards.”
