Fig.

Adam Broomberg & Oliver Chanarin

Steidl

Fig. contains over ninety still lives, portraits and landscapes by celebrated photographers Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin, drawing together specially commissioned work made around the south coast of England and other works made internationally, tracing links between photography, imperialism and the colonial impulse to acquire, map and collect. As Broomberg and Chanarin have observed: ‘Documentary photographers today have a worrying amount in common with the collector/adventurers of past eras. As unreliable witnesses, we have gathered together ‘evidence’ of our experiences and present our findings here; a muddle of fact and fantasy.’

Features an essay by art historian Julian Stallabrass.
