For his first solo exhibition Mark Tamer presents photographic objects and collages that renounce the notion of photography as a window-on-the-world and question the significance of the photographic subject.
Working mostly without a camera, he investigates the balance between chance and control, and between; construction and destruction, signal and noise and ultimately, life and death. (…) Through glitches and mistakes we get to see the base elements, the very construction of the material that creates those illusions of reality, the apparatus of photography itself.
True to the definition of photography as the art or process of producing images by the action of radiant energy on a sensitive surface, This Is It takes us to the core of photography itself.
Mark Tamer is an experimental photographer working with both analogue and digital mediums. He presents a world of chemical reactions and photographic surfaces that are subverted, interrupted, broken and reconstructed.
