Date: 19 November 2014
MA Photography alumni Geoff Titley and Héloïse Bergman are among a group of exhibitors from London Independent Photography Central Group showing work in this exhibition at Espacio Gallery as part of Photomonth 2014.
The title chosen for the show stems from a passage in The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy:
“Perhaps it's true that things can change in a day. That a few dozen hours can affect the outcome of whole lifetimes. And that when they do, those few dozen hours, like the salvaged remains of a burned house---the charred clock, the singed photograph, the scorched furniture---must be resurrected from the ruins and examined. Preserved. Accounted for. Little events, ordinary things, smashed and reconstituted. Imbued with new meaning. Suddenly they become the bleached bones of a story."
This is the third annual exhibition by the group. Work in the show ranges from photojournalism to personal story telling, all suggested by those little events, ordinary things that become The Bleached Bones of a Story.
