Contact Sheets - A Closer Look


As long as there has been photography there have been contact sheets. Once an essential component of the photographic process, their existence has diminished as the digital age progresses. Contact sheets however, represent an important era in photography and are destined to become a significant part of photographic history. They possess an inherently precious quality, as they are not manipulated, an extreme rarity in this day and age. In addition, they provide us with an invaluable insight into the photographers' method of thought, as well as revealing the largely unseen and fascinating editing process.

The exhibition will look at how contact sheets have played a significant part in the photographic process of editing. As well as highlighting that post selection they become an important visual reference and record. Contact Sheets are also an integral part of archiving work as well as being a finished work of art in their own right.
