‘The Camera Never Lies – Challenging images through The Incite Project’: What Is Truth? season at The Sainsbury Centre

Sainsbury Centre, Norfolk Road, Norwich, NR4 7TJ

18th May - 20th October

Re-evaluating some of the most iconic images of the past 100 years will be an exhibition dedicated to the impact and influence photography has had on shaping – and in some cases misdirecting – the narrative of major global events.

Featuring more than 80 works by photographers such as Don McCullin (b.1935), Stuart Franklin (b.1956) and Robert Capa (1913-1954), the exhibition will chart a global century of documentation and manipulation, through fact and fiction.

Sometimes seen as superior to text, photographs are now a mainstay of how the media and the public consume events such as war, famine, and celebrity.

21st century photography which reflects on the relationship between the camera and truth will also be investigated, and the people who are shining a light on the marginalised and overlooked. Including themes such as Government surveillance, domestic violence, and the effect of conflict on civilian populations, the exhibition will include work by Edmund Clark, Simon Norfolk, Trevor Paglen and Max Pinckers.

Curated by Harriet Logan and Tristan Lund, the works in this exhibition are drawn from The Incite Project, a private collection of photojournalism, documentary photography and photographic art with a remit to support contemporary practitioners.
