The exhibition Déjà Vu showcases emerging and established international talent and multiple award winners of high-profile competitions including the London Photography Festival, 2011 East-West Art Award, 1000 Words European Photography Award, The BookCase Study Publication Award. The catalogue, which will be available both at the exhibition and online at the App store will feature images from each artist and an essay by Joanna Lowry, MA Photography Course Leader. She says:

“The photographers in this exhibition have developed the ability to subtly misrecognise the world in order to reveal it. Whether dealing with the traces of the historical past that shadow the landscapes of the present, the passing figure in the street, an imagined interior, a doll’s face, or a dystopian future, they all recognise that the power of the photograph is in its capacity not for simple mimesis but for the production of that sudden magical moment in which we see through time and in which something new is revealed. If the photograph does provide a double of the world it is a fundamentally unstable one, one which opens up a domain of uncertainty through which we might, just, catch a glimpse of the real. Déjà vu.”
