The Searchers contemporary gallery project is pleased to be hosting ‘Discontinued’ a pop-up show of Bristol based photographers. The exhibition previews on Sunday 25th February and runs until Saturday 2nd March at 14 St Michaels Hill, Bristol.  This is the groups second Fine Art photography show together and will display selected works of recent graduates and current photography students from the University of the West of England.
Following their first exhibition ‘MONO-C’ last autumn in the Bristol Arts Quarter on Christmas Steps, the group continues to pursue their aim of endorsing contemporary photography by obtaining consistent exhibiting opportunities of previously unseen and new work.
Once captured, a moment loses its connection with time, continuing to exist autonomously as a photograph – with “no before or after: it represents only the moment of its own making.” (Graham Clarke) ‘Discontinued’ explores and reveals narratives behind the near and recognisable as well as the distant and unacquainted. Unlike the previous monochrome exhibition, ‘Discontinued’ will introduce colour work – choosing the different subject matter from still life and portrait to landscape, each pursuing their own individual style, all reflect the quiet stillness of the surrounding world expressed in the subtle tonality of imagery.
