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.
The current display features the photograph Lion by Jolanta Dolewska. For this series, Dolewska presents photographs she has made alongside those taken by her father. She does this without identifying whose image is whose and, in this way, has reclaimed her father’s pictures as her own. The photographs in Reservoir are all hand printed in varying sizes, black and white, and depict a range of people, places and objects.
Jolanta Dolewska (b. 1979, Warsaw) lives and works in Edinburgh. She graduated from Royal College of Art, London and has shown in England, as well as more widely in Europe and in South Korea. In 2013 she was included in The Photographers’ Gallery’s recent graduate show FreshFaced+WildEyed with work from the project holding II.
