About

Timothy Taylor Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of new work by the New York based British Photographer Adam Fuss. Emphasising themes of transformation and perception, Fuss seeks not to describe an object with the detailed clarity of traditional photography, but rather in ghostly and otherworldly manifestations of light and shadow. An expert in the field of camera-less photography, Fuss will present a new series of photograms and daguerreotypes for his second solo show at the gallery. As with Fuss's previous bodies of work, this exhibition stems from inspiration rooted in childhood. Remembering an oft- played board game, Snakes and Ladders, Fuss researched its original use. As a game of morality for young players in ancient India, it showed a path to enlightenment gained by good deeds — while ladders elevated players closer to Nirvana, the snakes returned them to earth. Where in this context the snake is a metaphor for the negative and corrupt, Fuss associates the creatures with the idea of a regenerative life force, a pure energy echoing the un-dulation of waves and the cycle of reincarnation.
