Gasket is about photography. About where it is, where it’s been and where it may go in the future. It’s about photography’s pioneers, its unsung workhorses and its visionaries. It’s about different disciplines taking photography to unexpected places and using it as a means to explore a rapidly evolving world. Gasket is about photography that asks questions and tells stories. It’s about photography that is critical. Gasket will introduce you to new artists, remind you of those who brought us here and challenge those in different disciplines to use photography in their own voice. We’ll write about exhibitions and works, both past and present, exploring ways in which traditional photographic genres are dissolving into something new.
Gasket will begin as a online collection which we hope will grow to a valuable resource of critical photography. We are developing exhibitions for the future and a programme of workshops and talks that we hope will build upon the critical work you see here.
We come from many different disciplines, and we’ll present what we find and explore from a multitude of perspectives. We’ll draw upon the talent around us and we’ll feature writing and perspectives from people who we feel have unique and valuable views to offer.
