I went to a symposium at Goldsmiths on 29/02/2020 after photography walk in Deptford. Tom Lisboa was one of the artists talkings there. He talked of photography as a starting point for his practice but then using and manipulating it to make works that play with the limitations of photography. A lot of the work involves urban intervention where the photograph is site-specific and intervenes with the ‘natural’ urban landscape. I found this work very interesting but what interested me more was when he started discussing other work which at first glance appears more conventionally photographic.
I find Ray Metzker (1931-2014)’s work very alluring, particularly one project called Pictus Interruptus (1976-1981).
Zander Olsen’s ongoing project Tree, Line (2004-) is conceptually-driven with a style bearing traits of Georges Rousse, Noémie Goudal with Studies on Perspective I (2014) and notably John Pfahl with Australian Pines, Fort DeSoto, Florida (1977).
