Untitled (crime scene), photographer unknown, c. 1950
Touchstone is a display featuring a single photograph on our Eranda Studio Floor.
Visitors are invited to respond to the photograph, through writing and drawing, using pencils and cards provided. This programme links with The Photographers' Gallery's wider educational emphasis on visual literacy.
Tying in with the exhibition Burden of Proof: The Construction of Visual Evidence, our current Touchstone display features a photograph that purportedly comes from an archive in the Carlisle, Pennsylvania area of the USA. It was one of three prints listed on an eBay seller’s store, all depicting similarly devastated, domestic interiors.
A selection of visitor responses to Touchstone images, as well as information about photographs displayed in the past, can be viewed here.
