News from the SunBad News Books
The window, the horizon, and the still life are some of photography’s biggest clichés. Darkroom and Instagram famous, beloved by professionals and amateurs alike, they demand to be photographed. They have become ciphers for photography itself. Their use often tells us what a photograph is or might be, confirms or tests its relationship to the world, to other art forms, and to the history of the medium.
News from the Sun features three photographers, each exploring these possibilities through one of these motifs. In each case, the motif is abstracted, serialised, and transformed through formal processes and manipulations that push it beyond the cliché.
