Evidence Case File
Publisher: Guiding Light
Dimensions: 35.5 x 24 cm
Part of the fascination with all photography is that the medium is firmly grounded in the documentary tradition. It has been used as a record of crime scenes, zoological specimens, lunar and space exploration, phrenology, fashion and importantly, art and science. It has been used as ‘proof’ of simple things such as family holidays and equally of atrocities taking place on the global stage.
It is interesting that the majority of photographs in this exhibition were never intended as beautifully crafted or well-composed images. They were required to prove a point, solve a mystery or simply to inform with clarity. The identity of a face, the location of a cell, the shape of a skull as confirmation of evolution or the coaxial lighting down a gun to show the twist of the barrel.
This hand bound catalogue provides a record of some of the fascinating stories and images from the exhibition. Presented within a detectives case file and protected within a transparent sleeve.
Each catalogue comes with it's own unique vernacular print attached to the cover.
