Marian Drew

Marian Drew: Photography + Video Works
by Geoffrey Batchen
Publisher's Description
The important thing about photography, according to Roland Barthes, is 'that the photograph possesses an evidential force, and that its testimony bears not on the object but on time.' The work of Marian Drew constitutes a creative, often playful dialogue with this proposition, offering us pictures of various objects permeated by time, or perhaps they are actually pictures of temporality itself, transformed into a visible object and thereby extended and multiplied, accumulated and transposed, smeared across the picture plane or captured in a hardened instant of photographic illusion. This book is a fascinating insight into the mysterious and fascinating nature of Marian Drew's artistic practice.
