Abstract (English)

" The exhibition consists of new and previously shown colour photographic works of landscapes and portraits. The works are largescale, similar in format, with text and augmented framind devices. Denniston’s work challenges our assumptions of the photograph as a ‘truth-telling’ artifact. The texts which accompany the photographs are descriptive, statistical’factual and their proximity to the image conveys credibility. It is the viewer who negotiates the deception. In addition to the disqueting relationship between text and image, Denniston’s work also points to our assumptions of the physical world, particularly the unbuilt environment, with regards to what is ‘natural’ and what is a cultural construct. Both humourous and unsettling, ‘fictions’ explores the balancing act we often go through when evaluating mediated information. " -- Publisher's website.
