Change the world or go home: TROVE No. 26 Non obsolescence

Curated by Charlie Levine, TROVESaturday 29th October – Day 30th December 2011Friday – Sunday 12 noon- 5pm or by appointment

DownStairs Gallery, Great Brampton House, Madley, Herefordshire HR2 9NA

Minnie Weisz’ camera obscura, Jo Gane’s collodian and Matthew Andrew’s film photography all represent an era of photographic history; these formats changed the world, revolutionised documentation and altered our perceptions of life and truth. These artists represent how our views of the world changed, and these artists suggest a possible reason why the everyman photographer may want to go home.
