NOKS Independent Art Space is hosting the Rich and Strange exhibition of a British author, curator and artist David Campany until June 10.
As the world of images becomes more digital, printed photographs from our past are always trying to find a place in today's world. Alfred Hitchcock was the master of suspense movies but suspense photography was different. Photographs show but do not tell; they portray but do not explain. Photographs are factual puzzles. Books resemble photographs as they focus on the finite details: African sheds, carts, the lily whiteness of Europe, a tense producer or a hero. All situated in Elstree in North London.
Rich and Strange includes video and a photographic elements that pay homage to a photographer who took this photograph and was lost to time, the materiality of photography and abandoned archives.
