Robert Burley: The Disappearance of Darkness


ROBERT BURLEY: THE DISAPPEARANCE OF DARKNESS

February 28 – May 24, 2015
Art Gallery of Hamilton


Robert Burley: The Disappearance of Darkness examines both the dramatic and historical demise of film-manufacturing facilities and industrial darkrooms. The photographs taken between 2005 and 2010 speak to sites and events related to the key corporations involved in this transformation, such as Kodak, Agfa and Ilford. As an artist working in photography for the past thirty years, Burley has been both an observer and a participant in this radical transition. This exhibition addresses both the emergence of a new technology, which irrevocably changed photography, as well as the abrupt and rapid breakdown of a century old industry, which embodies the medium’s material culture.
