An exhibition of photographic works by Paul Kenny, Liz Johnson, Claire Parr and Shaun Hines
Saturday 4th February – Sunday March 26th 2006
The photographic process is often seen as immediate – capturing a fleeting moment, an instant. But the danger is that, by focusing on the immediate and the urgent, the photograph then risks becoming an object that only exists within a wider context – it is a slice of life, one brief segment of a bigger picture. The aim of Longer Lookingwas to present images that are not dependent on anything but themselves, to bring together photographs that celebrate a calmer, more detailed and textured view of the world. Longer Looking focused on photography that is self-contained, that is beautiful and fascinating not because of what might be happening before, after or around it, but simply because of what it is. To co-inside with Longer Looking, Saltburn Artists’ Projects organised two pinhole photography workshops and an artist’s talk by Paul Kenney for members of the public to attend.
