Nothing is in the Place is a subjective survey that remembers life in 1990’s Britain. The show is an introduction to some of the photography that was made at that time offering glimpses of political unrest, social upheaval and analogue youth culture. Everyday lows jostle with esoteric highs to create a compulsive parade. The show is presented in a modular, editorial style and the photographers featured generously allowed the curator to make new versions of their work, often very different from the original contexts and formats intended for the images.
The exhibition was commissioned and had it’s premiere at the Photomonth Festival in Krakow, May 2010
