OPENDOORS // Christine Santa Ana guest curator
"We often take ourselves too seriously as photographers. Sublime meanings are superimposed on to photographs to give them more depth and righteousness, when we could simply just enjoy them for what they are. I present ‘Adventure’ to you, a concept borne out of a frustration of continual seriousness.
I would like to introduce Theo Acworth’s ‘Riding Bikes into Hedges & Other Adventures’ which caught my eye at a recent graduate show and Tom Calvert’s ‘Finding Tom Calvert’, where he follows a path previously trodden by an author who shares his name.
I’ll take you on a journey through back gardens to the peaks of the Lake District, offering humour and respite from Roland Barthes quotes.”
