‘Steer Against Motions
2012

Long before telescopes we witnessed the movement of celestial bodies, which Ovid and others recorded in ancient mythologies. Figuratively and literally, the meteors that fell to Earth gave us a better understanding of our place in the universe.

Barry W Hughes | Failed Photographs

Failed Photographs (2011) is a collection of photographs taken from my family albums. In each case the photographs display an obvious visual failure to that which was originally intended. Photographs like these have existed in many family archives for decades, but until recently the use of digital cameras – and on the spot editing – has resulted in the decline of such mistakes.
