Uncertain States First Tuesday Talk

The Decisive and Other Moments
featuring guest speaker James Russell Cant, taking place at The CASS Bank Gallery


Uncertain States is pleased to invite you to ‘The Decisive and Other Moments’ a talk by James Russell Cant at The CASS Bank Gallery.

Uncertain States

The project is a series of long exposure photography up to a yearlong recorded by both pinhole and conventional cameras. It is centred around the remains of a Georgian house, its gardens and the estuarine country and marshlands of Northeast Essex. The images trace some of the personal, familial, social, artistic and scientific histories connected to this place. The medium itself is severely tested in making the images by the exposure not only to light but also to the degrading properties of the climatic conditions in a manner that mirrors the effects of time on the, sometimes decaying and disintegrating, signs of human presence and endeavours within these landscapes.
