Justine Varga: Film Object - Art Collector

Justin Varga, Still Life #1, 2011. Gelatin silver photograph, 40.6 x 30.5 cm. Edition 3 + 2 a.p

Film Object exhibits photographic works exploring image making as a residue of light and object onto film. With the proliferation of digital technology Varga is more aware than ever of the tactility of analogue photographic process. The black and white works look to the tradition of the still life genre and the treatment of objects through the lens of a camera. In other works Varga has done away with the camera, recording the direct contact of film and object. Both methods of transference explore the inherent make up and physicality of film and the nature of recording and representation.
