  Shaun Waugh foregrounds the medium of photography as a primary subject. The exhibition ‘A Second Look’ invites the viewer to encounter Waugh's image constructions while reconsidering the histories, technologies and conventions of photography though which phenomena are made visible and presented for spectatorship. Photographs of objects captured at different focal lengths are digitally stitched across the image surface, or layered and composited in pictorial space. They engage the still life and landscape genres, while Waugh also turns his lens reflectively back on photography itself. Here we may perceive photography as a dynamic mix of raw data, the everyday and the stuff of spectacle.
