Progressive new exhibition explores the beauty in chaos and questions the future of authenticity in imagery. Opens at Getty Images Gallery, on Thursday 25 September through to 11 October, 2014.

Thursday 25 September, 2014, London: Getty Images is excited to announce the launch of an unprecedented exhibition, Glitch, which celebrates and explores a new visual trend Getty Images’ global creative team has identified through extensive visual research, titled the ‘glitch aesthetic’ – the shift in visual aesthetics brought about by the explosion in smartphone photography. It celebrates serendipity and mistakes, and showcases the inspiration driving professional photographers to craft anomalies in their work.

In 2014 the glitch aesthetic has become part of everyday social currency through photo-sharing – the selfie is the digital age’s art lesson in composition. Glitch is a vision of the unexpected – an idea of serendipity, of the creative and experimental disrupting the smooth, seductive unfolding of digital life.  The glitched image on a screen gives the sense of something material and tangible – an image that is otherwise without physical depth.
