'Under Glass' MA Photography at the University of Sunderland

Exhibition dates: 7 December 2007 - 26 January 2008
Preview: Thursday 6 December 2007 6:00 - 8:00pm

'Under Glass' reveals four new bodies of work by the graduating students in MA Photography at the University of Sunderland. The title has dual sets of associations for these four photographers. Boskamp, Maven, Reid and Overfield all work with archives and historical materials - whether archives of photographic images and texts, or more personal 'archives' of mementoes and collected objects. Their photographs are to be seen as though 'under glass', as specimens in a museum or archive: all four artists create images which have the aim of preserving or recalling lost time. For
The photographic image, for the four photographers here, is a repository of personal memory, and a store or collective knowledge.
