Miss Titus Becomes A Regular Army Mac

I am very pleased to announce that I will be releasing my new project, "Miss Titus Becomes A Regular Army Mac" at the Unseen Photo Fair in September! Working on a collaborative project with Kummer & Herrman and using source material from the wonderful archive of Brad Feuerhelm a new publication is to be made, and more news to follow shortly.

Here is a little excerpt about what the project is about;

"Faced with the enormity of an archive full of imagery, dissecting and assembling into curated narratives brings forth a wealth of possibilities. This body of work brings together a curated account around representations of women within 19th & 20th century photography through the unusual viewpoint of the backs of the images.

In the era of, the abundance of imagery, what really constitutes ‘seeing’ and ‘looking.’ Do we really see with our eyes or with the preconditioned ideals and stereotypes that make up contemporary society, our culture? When presented with the back of an image that one cannot view (in the traditional sense), that one is not used to looking at, we must then find and decipher the new codes available to us. The imperfect marks, the traces left behind by another, the notes, numbers and language lingering. Is it possible to read an image only from the information supplied on first glance or do we automatically go back to our ingrained knowledge bound with our perception to ‘understand’?"

It's going to be quite a project, so keep watching for more updates and information about the launch.
