Modern Forms is pleased to have donated several works by Adam Broomberg & Oliver Chanarin to the Tate Britain, UK.

Rejecting the 21st-century obsession with “shock-value” photojournalism, Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin approach their craft as something closer to ethnography. The pair avoid a signature style, and instead opt for a minimal, almost neutral approach, culling visual data about human behavior in realms of political discord. These abstract, camera-less photograms are the antithesis of war photography, referencing the impossibility of capturing on film the horrors of war.
