"... the camera should be a power in this age of instruction to instruct the age"

Liverpool Maritime Museum
It's a beautiful exhibition of 19th century photography of China, ordinary and extraordinary daily life of its people. The music in the background adding a lullaby to the photos.
A privileged glimpse to another life through his eyes, seeing what he saw, breathed, lived, documenting seconds in time, something we are unable to store and retain within our memory.
I have a fascination with trying to keep the past. An impossible task because whilst we are trying to get back what has already been, we miss what is coming, passing us by forever, lost invisible. The cycle you can never win.

I had seen the flyer for this and was drawn to the image of Red Rum for quite a while, the photo for some reason really intrigues me. The colours all have the same tone. I like things like that.
Brass art 'inside the invisible' captivating.
Jacob Dahlgren 'colour reading and contexture' I liked that if you went cross eyed and squinted it moved and breathed almost... it is alive!
