THE EXPERIENCE OF YOUTH
ROBIN HAITHCOAT, SAMUEL BARY, ALEX F WEBB
Loafer is a set of photographs made by Alex F Webb describing his physical travels through typologies and narrative snapshots in new and unknown territory. Set in Riga, Latvia his work is made up of overlapping mini-series that relate to a collection of overheard words, phrases and conversations from around the city. The collective images of Robin Haithcoat are an experiment in using matter and light in the hope to see what we cannot. And so her photos create multiple new questions and relationships to form, and so it seems the harder you look for answers in the images, the more mysterious the world becomes.
During a time of itinerant living Samuel Barry moved from town to town working jobs and using photography as method of documentation. His images aim to open a conversation on rootlessness, a deep interest in the cycle of time and a narrative of embodied wandering.
