Beers.Lambert presents a two-man photographic exhibition with works by British photographer Ed Hopley and Australian photographer Clinton Hayden - two artists with related yet entirely distinctive photographic perspectives.
Although hailing from a background of photojournalism, the works of Ed Hopley begin to engage at a much more subversive level than merely straightforward reportage. Similarly, Clinton Hayden's broad photographic practice includes figurative, still-life, landscape, and even nature stills; here, some of his most direct works prove to be also his most ambiguous. Together, the artists offer a profound insight into the form of so-called nature photography in our highly digitised world where photography has become transformed through its sheer ubiquity. What does it mean to challenge and question such a traditional subject-matter in the photographic medium? How do these artists legitimise and validate the practice of photography? The exhibition questions the nature and importance of the photographic form and the images and messages produced therein.
