Hotshoe Gallery, in collaboration with Ordinary-Light Photography, is pleased to present a group show themed around the concept of the ephemeral in photography.
This exhibition is an investigation into the fleeting moment; the profound way in which things appear and then quickly cease to be. Photography, both as an art form and a technological process, is tied to this concept in several unique and fundamental ways.
The exhibition seeks to investigate these ideas through a number of artist’s works, whilst also begging wider questions of contemporary culture with specific regard to technology, the immaterial, documentation, speed, inconsistency and the ‘throw-away’.
