The Photo-Diaries of Mick Williamson
Hug Gallery

November 27, 2004 - January 1, 2005

work: 40 pieces

Amsterdam Times review


In this solo exhibition, Mick Williamson showed a total of 40 silver gelatin prints from the ongoing project, The Photo-Diaries of Mick Williamson, ranging in size from 10 x 8 cm to 130 x 100 cm.

The aim of the project is to create a sustained enquiry into the processes of recording, documenting and celebrating the daily and everyday transitory events that form our everyday lives. The work shown in the Hug Gallery exhibition concentrated on the poetics of the single image.

"Photographers often pride themselves on their ability to capture the decisive moment. The work of Mick Williamson however purposefully shuns the key moment, preferring instead to focus on what might be construed as the missed opportunity. The impression left on the observer is in fact one of continuity and duration. There is no moment, only before and after the event. In other words the photographer is directed to capturing the entirety of the event. The image is then seen to be standing in for a continuous sequence and may be likened to the medium of film." Addie Vassie
