A Cyclical Poem
A CYCLICAL POEM' IS A PARTIAL AND ELLIPTICAL LOOK AT THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN PHOTOGRAPHY AND A CLUSTER OF THEMES: TIME, MEMORY AND REPETITION.
‘A Cyclical Poem’ brings together photographers who have long and significant careers.
In some cases the works selected are the result of the photographer returning to the same or similar subjects over or after a long period of time. Sometimes the images are from one period, but made in concert with the passing of time.
Many of the images included date from well before the digital era. Since digital culture has fundamentally altered the relationship between image, time and memory, on reading of this exhibition might be to question of those changes.
In the texts below some of the photographers in the exhibition speak about their work.
