Event description

Description

An exhibition of camera-phone images taken on the streets of Brisbane from 2014 to 2017 by Neil Degney. The exhibition runs from October 7 to October 27, Thursday - Friday 12-6, Saturday - Sunday 11-4.

This body of work explores the relationship between camera-phone connectivity, photography, art and populism.

Camera phones have democratised image making creating the most significant immediacy of image making since George Eastman produced the first Kodak ‘Brownie’ camera.

The limited tonalities and resolution of camera phone images produce artifacts which become an integral part of their aesthetic.

This prevailing aesthetic leans towards a return to Pictorialism with its reliance upon filters and image enhancement breaking away from the all-powerful realism that has dominated photography since Ansel Adams and Brett Weston established its philosophical predominance in the 1940’s.

Neil Degney currently lives and works in Brisbane he has over 30 years of experience working in image making both as a photographer and visual artist. He has exhibited nationally and internationally in a range of mediums during that time.
