Save Event: From the Diaries of

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


From the Photo Diaries of Mick Williamson, just back from his show in Calcutta, is a non stop journey of Mick’s observations of the world through light and the captured moment with his half frame black and white film camera.


"Williamson’s photographs act as fragments and his work can be seen as an on-going exploration into the transitory and random nature of existence. However his images are not sombre but celebratory, and in the combination of everyday subjects and unassuming technique Williamson offers us something of the wide-eyed wonder and fascination of a child’s vision filtered through an adult sensibility" (Photographers Gallery website)

“Photographers often pride themselves on their ability to capture the decisive moment. The work of Mick Williamson however purposefully shuns the key moment, preferring instead to focus on what might be construed as the missed opportunity. The impression left on the observer is in fact one of continuity and duration. There is no moment, only before and after the event. In other words the photographer is directed to capturing the entirety of the event. The image is then seen to be standing in for a continuous sequence and may be likened to the medium of film."

Addie Vassie

“The images act as partial, gentle fragments which invite an attentiveness towards the everyday, the non-glamorous. They are gentle, non-insistent images which provide a welcome antidote to the demanding, spectacular environment in which we are distracted by demands to achieve or be entertained. Instead, Mick’s images offer a mode of viewing which is closer to the act of contemplation ... These moments fix what is transitory whilst retaining the arbitrariness of the initial moment. They belie the effort needed to produce a vast personal archive that consistently avoids the heaviness of the usual documentary shot or the posed family portrait."
