The gallery is open Wednesday to Saturday from 10am to 6pm and by appointment.
This exhibition, curated by Julien Dobbs-Higginson, presents a selection of work that continues to engage with the possibilities, complications and pitfalls of visual communication. “What originally drew me to Sam’s work, beyond the obvious beauty of the photos, is the way he plays with scale, framing and the dramatic juxtaposition of images – especially in his diptychs which are incredibly powerful.”
Editing is as important to Irons’ as making photographs. His work challenges perception, creating relationships between dissimilar images that resonate whilst refusing easy interpretation. “I'm interested in disruption, a combining of discordant genres of images in a way that upsets the viewers’ presuppositions of what they're looking at and what it might mean. Brecht said, ‘Less than ever does the mere reflection of reality reveal anything about reality’, and I try to explore what is revealed and what remains hidden even within a technology devoted to the visible.”
