OPENING: Polly Brown - Airportals

24 October at Stevenson
British photographer Polly Brown’s new show 'Airportals' revolves around the politically charged process of airport security checks.

Taking photographs at these points of migration is strictly forbidden, however the x-ray machines used at them can leave their mark on undeveloped photographic film – fogging and damaging the rolls, creating an unintended and abstract documentation. Three years in the making and Brown’s first solo show in The Netherlands, this exhibition brings together photographs and abstracted mark making which capture these ghostly echoes. Shot solely on damaged x-rayed film 'Airportals' presents a forbidden portrait of these tightly controlled liminal zones in a beautiful and haunting body of work.

'Airportals' is a presentation by WE FOLK, the London-based photographic agency that shares Stevenson's Amsterdam office.
