Gallery On
Seoul, Korea

September 1 - October 4, 2005

work: 46 unframed silver gelatin prints

The Photo-Diaries of Mick Williamson on Neolook - online arts magazine (Korea)


In this solo exhibition, 46 unframed silver gelatin photographic prints from the ongoing project, The Photo-Diaries of Mick Williamson were shown. The work selected focussed particularly on the phenomenon of temporality as an unbroken sequence (as a means of re-examining and critiquing Bresson’s "Decisive Moment" ideas - ie. time carrying on, not time standing still etc.).

"The images act as partial, gentle fragments which invite an attentiveness towards the everyday, the non-glamorous. They are gentle, non-insistent images which provide a welcome antidote to the demanding, spectacular environment in which we are distracted by demands to achieve or be entertained. Instead, Mick’s images offer a mode of viewing which is closer to the act of contemplation ... These moments fix what is transitory whilst retaining the arbitrariness of the initial moment. They belie the effort needed to produce a vast personal archive that consistently avoids the heaviness of the usual documentary shot or the posed family portrait."
