Between Here and There is a thought-provoking collection of photographs exploring how environments act as a testament to existence and identity. Now I'm as 'deep' as the next person, but surely a photograph, an image captured on your camera/phone does just that - captures the moment. Is memory enough? If it were, would we own enough, or seek such devices that snap an image and keep it forever? Here's what the organisers say:
"One of photography's most intrinsic and oldest objectives has been to secure a moment of time and offer it as evidence of some sort of true, concrete experience. But how fixed is that experience, and can the photographs we use as evidence actually work as a contradiction to a 'fixed' reality? This is not a new idea, but in an increasingly media- mediated, migratory, travelling communication-savvy world the idea is becoming more visible and more complex." - The Photographic Angle
Sound like something you've mulled over yourself? I like to think we've all had such profound thoughts. If you're intrigued already then head over to fountain court and have a think about the photos before you - have they captured a moment in time, or not?
I think it's safe to say whether you agree or not you won't be throwing your camera away, or stop taking pictures. It's just something to think about.
