"The Day Nobody Died"

Posted By Administration, Saturday, February 19, 2011

War photographers Oliver Chanarin and Adam Broomberg turn documentary photography on its head.

Feeling the impact of war images have lost their real resonance Chanarin and Broomberg tried a new approach. Rather than capturing the horrors or heroism of war the pair carry a box of photographic paper to each scene and expose sheets to 20 seconds of light. The result is a haunting reduction of a simple action- opening and closing of a door; the light caught on paper shows no detection of violence or pain. If we have been desensitized to graphic imagery then perhaps the shier number of unseen records is chilling enough.
