About'IMAGE' is an exhibition of photographic work by Foundation and BA Hons Degree students studying at University of Greenwich. The work explores a broad number of themes which examine how 'image' and 'images' shape the world around us and determine our relation to it .
Ansel Adams claimed that there is nothing worse than a sharp image of a fuzzy concept." Yet one might argue that the concept of 'image' is itself somewhat fuzzy. For when we ask ourselves what an image is, we inevitably run up against a number of contradictions. Images appear to be at the same time both things in themselves and pointers to things elsewhere. What's more, it is difficult to say where any given image resides. Is an image in the world or in our heads? Or is it both simultaneously? Furthermore, to what extent does the image we have ourselves influence how we interpret or read an image?
