Works by four distinctive artists who share a commitment to the photograph as a means of expression were brought together in an exhibition curated by Mario Popham. Besides their affinity for photography, their work also shares a preoccupation with the stuff of modern life: the overlooked and discarded matter accumulating in the peripheries of our collective vision. These artists prove to us that the detritus is still worthy of our attention; that there is still uncommon beauty and meaning to be found amongst the material remnants of our endeavours.

Rather than producing a catalogue that faithfully reflects the form and content of the exhibition, this publication presents an opportunity to upturn the completed puzzle and reconfigure the pieces anew. New rhythms and formal relationships are suggested through proximity and placement. Punctuating this fragmented flow of images are essays by William Boling, Sara Jaspan, Mike Pinnington, & Jacob Charles Wilson who in surveying the debris, illuminate new paths of meaning and suggest fresh ways of seeing.
