For Patrick Pound, what started out as a form of research - the collecting and collating of vast archives of vernacular material, photos, books and objects - morphed into his art practice. He upcycles images and objects that have been discarded. Cut loose from their original creator and purpose, Pound gives them new contexts and meanings. In so doing, he asks us to consider the nature of photography; the creation of meaning; and the human urge to make sense of the world around us. Photography and air 2016 consists of numerous found photographs of people and things that are in some way affected by the wind; from a candle in the breeze to a hovering plane, a yacht’s billowing sail to a young woman at the beach, her hair blown by the breeze.
