False Friends (Special Edition), Dominic Turner

Tax included.

This is a special limited edition of the book False Friends which comes housed in a custom made box (corner stapled) and includes a very limited edition print of the photograph ‘Exiled’ which from the series False Friends but not included in the book. The print is as special, as it is rare, since it was made by Benrido Atelier in Kyoto, Japan - one of the only collotype print works still in existence and renowned for their skill and mastery of the collotype process.

In a world of ‘alternative facts’ and ‘cognitive dissonance’ Turner’s photographs play with the idea of information voids and misunderstandings, inviting the viewer to explore the shadows and obfuscations of a familiar, yet not quite recognisable world.

“There are those who would have us believe that the scariest of monsters dwell in the shadows and that we must be on permanent guard. I prefer to think that, while always striving to increase our understanding of the world, we can acknowledge and accept the things we do not know and bathe in the soothing powers of the shade.”

Turner’s work has a tactile, almost ethereal quality, which stems from his fastidious and experimental approach to the process of image making. These are images that are deeply ponderous in nature and often require repeated viewings which reveal the subtle details that unlock the work.
