PH21 Gallery is a contemporary exhibition space established in 2012 in Budapest, Hungary. This exhibition, titled Light and Shadow, showcases how photographers have relied on the possibilities offered by the interplay between lights and shadows throughout the history of photography. In some cases lights and shadows are used to the effect of creating a formal compositional element; in others their role is to guide our gaze or focus our attention on specific parts of the image. The ways lights and shadows contribute to photographic meaning only depend on the imagination of the photographer.
