Sweet Debris is a group exhibition featuring new and existing photographs and objects by four rising early career artists whose work searches for meaning and beauty among the detritus of modern life.
With the world today inundated with digital imagery due to the proliferation of image-sharing platforms such as Instagram and Pinterest, Sweet Debris explores how photographic artists are still finding new expression amongst the rubble, through committed attention to the commonplace and the otherwise disregarded.
The photographs of Phoebe Kiely and Chris Rhodes demonstrate that, in the age of the iPhone where we are all photographers now, in the right hands the traditional camera retains the capacity to see and frame the world anew.
