fantastical exhibition at the Fruitmarket has just come down, bones . down and isolates a single idea with some considerable style. The snake here, having just cut its skin with a pair of scissors in preparation for shedding, gives the theory of evolution a visual nudge forward.
While Webb narrates philosophy, Duane Michals and Bernard Faucon look at love in very different ways. Michals accompanies the image with words, poetic but at the same time down-to-earth. The tragedy of a gay man trapped by his sexuality is described by his hands becoming feet and vice versa. ‘It never occurred to him to break the law' says Michals. Faucon paints with his camera. Watercolourtales tell of love in empty rooms full of snow or sun. Each exposure is a sunburst, a fireball or climax.
Bea Nettles too manipulates her prints to create mood and mythology in herwork, while Barbara Crane transforms a peach into a planet from the moment she opens the aperture.
Collecting together photographers who have been working as narrators overthe past twenty years, this excellent exhibition gives a selective I look at methods of direction and of ; technical manipulation which tree the photographer from the sometimes restrictive practice of documentation.
