And Time Folds accompanies a retrospective exhibition of the British photographer Vanessa Winship at the Barbican Art Gallery, London.
« I’ve alway felt that photography is a process of literacy, both an attempt to understand the world I live in and how to represent it. I’m interested in the telling of history, and in who does the telling. »
« I’ve created much of this work without ever really having to say a word, just by seeing and moving quietly ; once, that is, I’ve understood – again more often than not, without words – that I’ve been given permission. »
At once intimate and epic, Winship’s black-and-white photographs explore notions of borders, land, memory, desire and history. This volume comprises photographs from seven series, including projects made during a decade living in the region of the Balkans, Turkey and the Caucasus; as well as work made in Georgia, America and the U.K. Winship has long been concerned with the elusive nature of transience in our landscape and society, and her oeuvre moves sure-footedly between genres – reportage, documentary, portraiture and landscape. Alongside her luminous photographs, And Time Folds brings together personal archival material that reveals Winship’s thought process, working methods, and the importance of the written word, as well as an extensive essay by the renowned photography historian David Chandler, proffering a multi-faceted view of her work and artistic trajectory.
