SATURATIONthe everyday transformed will explore remarkable bodies of work created by a young generation of artists who use photography to explore lives played out in front of them, often creating or conveying a heightened experience through the use of colour.

The exhibition will embrace aspects of social media, street photography, music and fashion photography with elements of the documentary tradition to make for a display that is light-hearted, if sometimes claustrophobic. Inevitably it will reflect, if often only accidently, major changes in both society and technology, how photographs are taken, shared and consumed.

SATURATIONthe everyday transformed will focus on photography of contemporary life at the intersection of the quotidian, or everyday and the fantastic or even surreal. It will explore what Susan Sontag termed ‘Everyday life apotheosized…the kind of beauty that only the camera reveals’.
