Taken from Lewis Blanch's series Grey, his own photographs are embedded into old family negatives. Utilising them as backdrops and artefacts inferring a visual connection between past and present. The subject of the photographs are ordinary and domestic scenes, which become removed from their original context through a system of distortion and compression. Their unclear quality is exaggerated by the scanning and printing process, creating subtle echoes between the photographs. This raises questions of how conscious and constructed the interplay between imagery is. His work is predominantly concerned with the questioning of the image and representation. Along with photography's shift from traditional film to digital processes, focusing on the physicality of photographs, treating them as object in the algorithmic era.
