Materiality Exposed is an investigation and exploration of the materiality of photographs.
The digital age has transformed photography, our way of taking, looking and experiencing photographs. From the darkroom, lightbox and photo album to screens and Instagram, as viewers we don’t often consider the photograph as an object or how it came into existence. Whether printed on paper or shared on a screen, our focus is drawn to the visual subject within images we are presented with.
This exhibition of digital and digitised 35mm film photographs considers the photographs fluid existence as an object made up of physical material, process, context and experience.
This exhibition has been curated by Jessica Miller as part of her studies for the MA Museums, Galleries and Contemporary Culture at the University of Westminster, London.
