View the Exhibition

Barnard Gallery, in conjunction with MOP6: Cape Town Photography, Film & New Media Biennale is pleased to present Glimpse, a solo exhibition of photographs by artist Alastair Whitton. Drawing on cultural sources including literature, history, art and the Bible, Whitton is known for conceptually engaging work that is essentially concerned with the ways in which we recognize, recall and navigate the world around us. The artist’s most recent project Glimpse is primarily a series a photographic ‘portraits’ of objects and landscapes from a personal collection gathered and carried over an extended period. These images function as commemorative markers and explore the notion of the photograph as memorial. The evidence of a life; this collection of photographs chronicles aspects of love and loss, memory and geography and is essentially a meditation on transience and the passage of time.
