Obsessionistas Website

posted by Michael on 30 September 2011

As befits an obsessive collector Bill Jackson has been noticed and consequently interviewed by a new website dedicated to the obsessed, Obsessionistas.

In his interview Bill elaborates on the "Cabinet of Curiosities" exhibition:

"...turning the object into a photograph which in itself is an object and then back into an object was very important. You could say that a frame is also an object but the common usage of frames detracts the viewer from the object quality of the photographic print hence my particular way of 'framing' Cabinet Of Curiosities. The Relic series alludes to photographic glass or forensic specimen slides... Head is a series of prints on paper, which have an intrinsic quality of 'objectness', and I wanted them to be seen as such, so putting them into frames was not an option."

Our new exhibition "Cabinet of Curiosities" is highlighted on the Design Week blog.

Quote: "...the exhibition boldly suggests that the photograph itself might be considered an object rather then a window for documentary."

Secret Relatives | Paula Hitler

posted by Michael on 27 September 2011

This week's theme is relatives of famous people who were largely unknown.

The first is the unlikely named Paula Hitler. She was the sister of Adolf and in spite of sounding like a comical invention was real and lived until 1960. It appears that brother and sister were not close and while he supported her financially he encouraged her to live under the psuedonym Mrs Wolff.
