Behind the Lens

We live in a culture of documentation. Or perhaps we have always been this way – from cave paintings to oral stories to the first, momentous flip of a page, have we not always endeavoured to immortalise the memories and ideas we hold dear? 

In Behind the Lens, we both scrutinise and honour the spirit of photography. We pay homage to the innately human desire to memorialise and transform the past, conversing with image-makers near and far about their purpose and practice. "Why make art," we ask?
