In a time when uncertainty dominates the media, with Britain’s membership to the EU hanging by a thread only to be backed up by political hesitation and indecision, the individual is left to circumnavigate their own way through the idea of what it means to be human.
The anxiety of being left adrift, by a spouse, by a child or simply by the passage of time has been mourned, marked and celebrated in this diverse group of photographers whose works cover a wide range of subjects from history, topographic survey, hauntology and memory to illness, societal expectations and gender stereotypes. As we continually move into the unknown we are left to mark the traces we leave behind.
Such a disparity of interpretations of the theme not only displays the breadth of subject matter that intrigue the artists but confronts the likelihood that we are always constantly in flux.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
