This event is part of our Past Programme
The merging of present and past, use of unusual perspective, and juxtaposition of unlike things, are just some of the tools employed by these photographers to explore the strangeness and incongruousness of existence. By focusing on such devices, instead of inserting fantastical or made-up elements, these artists create images that are both curious and familiar, grounded in that which can be universally understood.
Whilst the term magical realism was originally coined in relation to literature, photography’s paradoxical ability to represent truth and create fiction makes it the ideal medium to explore this theme. These images are intended to be simultaneously believed and disbelieved.
