Thursday 7 November 2014 #NOFILTER   Uncertain States presents writer and lecturer Paul O’Kane who is joined by the artists David George and Karl Ohiri to discuss photography as a tool to reflect longingly and critically on one’s past.   Contrary to what one might expect with the advances in technology, our fascination with cyberspace and the virtual world, we appear to have increased yearning for something or sometime past. Nostalgia is considered not only as a longing for the past, but a longing for an idealised past, for a moment that prehaps never actually existed. The talk will consider Read More...

Jan Enkelmann: Serious Conviction Once the site of riots, tumultuous demonstrations and public meetings of groups that weren’t allowed to gather anywhere else (the communists), Speakers’ Corner is where Marx, Lenin and Orwell found their audiences. Today it is either ignored or seen as a playground for eccentrics, religious fanatics and oddballs of all kinds. While the latter is certainly true and the majority of speeches have religious backgrounds, my feeling is that it has always been that way – and there are still a number of speakers desperately trying to keep the tradition of meaningful political debate alive. Some Read More...

To simulate this we first made an exposure for the sky and then ‘tweaked’ this exposure until Read More...

The key to this shot’s success was Read More...
