Jeffrey Silverthorne: Where Energy Goes @ Unseen

Interview Darren Harvey Regan – “The Erratics” @Unseen

“Photography is a medium that typically hides its own materiality – we commonly look at an image rather than the material surface it appears to us on.

Akiko Takizawa @ Unseen: “Nocturnal Grievance”

Clink, clink, the third […]
