Sourcebook. Lewis Chaplin. Fourteen-Nineteen Books.
Sourcebook presents the detritus and collected imagery of a year of contemplation, frustration and ambivalence with the nature of photography. From an initial starting point of the typographic reference book, within its pages a myriad of situations and pictures present themselves – each at once recognisable and indecipherable.
Drawing heavily on ideas of representation and the ‘reading’ of an image, the work within is open-ended; a liquid, unstable mix of ideas and images that attempt to elude the conclusive, finite nature of the captured image or the printed photo. Instead, Sourcebook aims to be fluid – at once a source of reference and stimulation for future creative processes, and a photographic document littered with unanswered questions, oblique strategies and glimpses of meaning.
