Abstract or Summary

In 2015, From Certainty to Doubt won the "NZ Photobook of the Year". Described by the judges; “From Certainty to Doubt is a unique gallery publication that is unashamedly about photography. It is beautifully bizarre in concept and materiality. The design is elegant but restrained, the sequencing is strong, the text is quirky, and every page has been carefully constructed. It is truly thought provoking and the multi-part format ensures it will stand out from the crowd." From Certainty to Doubt will be explored in a gallery exhibition of the same name that pulls the book format apart, looking again at the source photographs, research material and ephemera that influenced this multi award winning publication. The photographic works in this exhibition examine some of nature’s fundamental survival strategies - mimicry, camouflage and deception - and look at how humans have adapted these strategies in their lives. A type of opening up of the archives that all-the-while urges the viewer to look and look again.
