Pamela Jane Wheeler
Animate: Re-working the David Knights-Whittome Archive
Pamela Jane investigates ideas of presence and 'life' within photographs with the study into the David Knights-Whittome archive. Housed in The London Borough of Sutton Archives are thousands of his photographic glass plates c.1907-1917. Animate is the result of Pamela Jane's investigation into the plate negatives and the people they present. Using a personal photographic process, varied outcomes are created that seek to portray the emotional and theoretical journey the collection has taken her on. It is combined into a fascinating collection of new imagery and insightful theory - capturing the magical notion of photographs, their subjects and their place in the present.
