The 2012 VICE Photo Show at V1 Gallery

“The 2012 VICE Photo Show” presents international photo art at V1 Gallery

From September 26th – 29th selected photos from the VICE Photo Issue magazine will be exhibited at V1 Gallery in Copenhagen. The 2012 VICE Photo Show is presented by SONY and it will feature works from Asger Carlsen, Peter Sutherland, Roger Ballen, Olga Kravets and Kevin Kunishi.

The exhibition kicks off with an open reception at V1 Gallery on Wednesday Sep. 26th from 18-20. Joining the reception will be Asger Carlsen – the New York based Danish photographer, whose work is featured on the cover of this year’s VICE Photo Issue.

Since 2001, VICE has released a Photo Issue magazine, showcasing works from famous and upcoming photographers around the world including Terry Richardson, Ryan McGinley, Richard Kern, Jaimie Warren, Roe Ethridge, Lele Saveri, Jim Mangan, Sandy Kim, Martin Parr, Jerry Hsu, Gavin Watson, Ben Ritter and many more. The Photo Issue has always been one of the most popular of VICE’s monthly magazine releases and to do justice to the photo artwork, the issue is printed in a special oversize format.

Martin Mo Kvederis, Country Manager of VICE in Denmark explains: “The Photo Issue has always showcased progressive photo art and worked as a rare opportunity for photographers like Terry and Ryan to publish their true work without the censorship of the traditional media gang. It’s an honor to have Asger’s weird images in our mag. Actually, we’re so proud to have a Dane on the global cover that we want to stick them up on the wall of a gallery.”

The choice of V1 Gallery is no coincidence. Martin adds: “V1 Gallery has always supported progressive urban art and has exhibited works from several of the Photo Issue contributors, so we are happy to present our exhibition here.“
