Throwaway

Holly Granville-Edge

11 Apr 2013 to 21 Apr 2013

In Holly Granville-Edge’s exhibition Throwaway she investigates what is valuable in a photograph. Whether it is a snap from a family photo album or an image seemingly insignificant or insipid, photographs have significance and prominence in art and in everyday life. ‘Photographs can carry a weight and a value far greater than the paper they’re printed on’ says Granville-Edge. Throwaway features constructed colour photographs featuring everyday objects and staged moments. Narrative and meaning do not take form, rather the work aims to highlight a contrast between the valued photographs and the memories they contain.
