One thing leads to another presents the viewer with a set of images that quietly declare the inexhaustible list of possibilities for photography as a fundamentally eclectic, accumulative and associative pursuit. The 40 photographs in the exhibition record diverse subject matter ranging from a glance on the street, a body reclined on a chair, a funny expression glimpsed, a sky long studied, a shifting shadow on brickwork, a child's toy, an expansive landscape view, to a diagram copied from an old book. These photographs invite their own moment of intimate encounter in order to celebrate unexpected associations and conceptual links. Each is not only a discrete memory trace of a place, a moment, a person, an emotion or thought, but also a trigger to another image; a point in a relay of associations that layer and deepen our experience of the world about us as a place of possibility, wonder and perplexity.
