"Take the Shot" explores the possibilities of photography across genres. Each contributing photographer speaks to the exhibition's theme through a unique visual language, be it mobile photography, augmented reality, Instagram, or web documentaries. These disparate specialisations find unity in the shared process of how a photographer’s vision evolves and spreads through the mediums and technologies that enable them to photograph their surroundings. The exhibition offers a proactive exploration of the world while constructing a visual vocabulary for modern image-making.

Examples include: photographer Natalie Nacacche combining photography, writing, and film to share stories of women longing for Syria; famed war photographer Franco Pagetti implementing his reportage skills to shoot a campaign for fashion giant Dolce & Gabbana; and Stacey Baker transforming her Instagram documentation of NYC into a vivid photo book. Other participating photographers include Ammar Al Attar, Tasneem Alsultan, Matt Black, Rasmus Degnbol, Thomas Dworzack, Davide Monteleone, Paolo Pellegrin, Maggie Steber, Anastasia Taylor-Lind, Danila Tkachenko, and Kai Wiedenhoefer.
